Website Accessibility

  • Overview

    Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) is committed to providing information through its website to all members of the public, including those with disabilities.

    Some users with or without disabilities may not be able to see, hear, or process some types of information; may have difficulty reading or understanding text; or may not be able to use a keyboard or mouse. Website design and compatibility with website readers and other technology can make the information on the website more accessible to everyone.

    SCUSD continues to review and update its websites to ensure compliance with standards developed by the World Wide Web Consortium and reviewed and approved by the Office of Civil Rights. These standards are called the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) Level AA.

    Most of the information provided on our websites are in HTML format. Longer documents are sometimes provided in PDF format. Additional resources to read a PDF document are available through Adobe Systems at its Accessibility Resource Center.
