    Compliance & Remediation
    SD 308 is committed to providing a website that is accessible to individuals with disabilities in compliance with the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

    Compliance Tools
    We use an automated tool to scan our websites for 508 accessibility on a monthly basis. (WAVE)
     
    What is WAVE?
    • WAVE is a web accessibility evaluation tool. Rather than providing a complex technical report, WAVE shows your original web content with embedded icons and indicators that reveal the accessibility information within your page. WAVE cannot tell you if your web content is accessible – only a human can determine true accessibility – but WAVE can help you evaluate the accessibility of your web content. You can submit web content to WAVE for evaluation by providing a URL, uploading a file, or entering/pasting HTML code. 

    Remediation Framework
    The Remediation Framework outlines a course of action to bring SD308 websites and content into compliance with Section 508.

    Naming convention
