Notice of Accessibility
With regard to the Lancaster Central School District’s (“the district”) website, www.lancasterschools.org, the district is committed to complying with the provisions of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This commitment exists so that students, parents, and members of the public with disabilities are able to independently acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same benefits and services as those without disabilities, with equivalent ease of use.
The district is in the process of transitioning its website to a more accessible format and will make every attempt to comply with the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA and the Web Accessibility Initiative’s Accessible Rich Internet Applications Suite (WAI-ARIA) 1.0. These standards help make a website easier to navigate for people experiencing vision problems, dexterity issues, hearing limitations, and/or other neurocognitive barriers. The district’s director of communications, in conjunction with the district’s technology department, will review the district’s website and evaluate its accessibility on a periodic basis.
The Lancaster Central School District is not always able to provide alternate text or HTML versions for many of the documents that appear on the website in PDF format. However, we will make every reasonable effort to provide any web document or information in an alternate format accessible to any individual with a disability. If any person is unable to access information provided on the district’s website or in any web-based resource, s/he is encouraged to contact the district through its director of communications or community relations assistant, as noted below:
