Website Accessibility

At Hope Elementary School District, we seek to understand and respect the unique needs of our students and community. We are committed to ensuring the accessibility of our web content to people with disabilities. All content on our website will conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA.

This policy applies to all new, updated, and existing web content on www.hope-esd.org and all content on our teacher sites and intranet. Accessibility checks and training will be incorporated into the publishing workflow for all new website content. In addition, we will ensure third-party content providers are aware of our web accessibility policy and will favor providers based on their accessibility conformance claims.

Each page of the website will include a link to a form providing a method for users to submit feedback on the site; this information will be compiled and considered during the review process. Any accessibility issues should be reported to Melanie Matta at mmattahope@gmail.com or by using the posted form.

All areas of the Hope Elementary School District website will be reviewed annually. Reviews are the responsibility of Hope Technology Department.

This policy will be reviewed annually to ensure current compliance and was last reviewed September 14, 2018, by Melanie Matta. 

We are currently working to bring our website into compliance. We expect Hope Elementary School District’s web content will meet WCAG 2.0, Level AA conformance by January 2020.

Hope Elementary School District has modified policies to prioritize accessibility glitches to ensure they are remedied with the same level of priority as any other equivalent loss of website function.

Hope Elementary School District will utilize a knowledgeable website accessibility consultant responsible for conducting annual website accessibility evaluations.
