This is a list of the accessibility items from our Accessibility Plan that have been completed.
An initial assessment of district and college websites was conducted against accessibility requirements as outlined in Section 508. It was determined that the websites needed to be completely redesigned to meet current web standards and requirements.
A Request for Proposal (RFP) was provided to a number of leading firms to redesign the District and college websites and provide a Content Management System (CMS) solution. Meeting current web standards and accessibility requirements was a major driving requirement for the redesign project.
A Website Workgroup was formed to assess various website proposals and to select the best one to meet the districts needs. Hannon Hill was selected as the primary vendor to provide the district with a Content Management System. Hannon Hill sub contracted with Articulate Solutions to provide a website design to meet current accessibility requirements as defined in Section 508 as well as meeting WCAG 2.0 AA.
District web development team attended web accessibility training conducted by WebAim located at Utah State University.
District web development team created an inventory spreadsheet of all documents published to the public web servers. This inventory was made available to department managers across the district to assess status and priority level for each document. Documents deemed high priority would be remediated for accessibility first.
An accessibility resources page was developed that includes a number of resources for staff. Resources include guides for creating accessible Word and Adobe documents and free Linda.com training resources for learning accessibility.
Purchase scanning software to further improve the accessibility of District websites. Previously, the District web development team used a variety of free tools for testing accessibility that proved to be cumbersome and inefficient. This software allows the District web development team to locate and correct accessibility issues more quickly.
