All K-12 Institutions in the US must be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) 508. The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) is cracking down on compliance and putting federal funds at risk. Not only your sites must start as compliant, but they must also stay that way.
This article shares information about School Loop's 508 compliance with information to help you understand its importance and handle any disputes.
School Loop ADA/508 Certification
School Loop is certified to help users author Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Level AA compliant content. Our Content Management System (CMS) has been through an exhaustive review by experts. It would be one thing for us to claim that we are compliant. It is another thing for the leading university-based authority on compliance to confirm it.
We Have Your Back
If you are flagged for a violation, and the breach is covered by our certification, Web Accessibility in Mind (WebAIM). This is the country's leading university-based authority on web accessibility. We will provide documentation to dispute the claims.
No CMS can completely prevent users from authoring non-conformant content, and software checkers sometimes miss errors. To stay safe, you must:
- Monitor your content.
- Fix all 508 compliance-related issues when identified by the Site Center in School Loop.
- Train your staff.
