Digital ADA Compliance: Legal Considerations Faced by Schools

 

Public and private schools are under increased pressure today to make sure all digital information is accessible by everyone, including those with disabilities. Web accessibility is a requirement and now has become the center of the Office for Civil Rights “OCR” complaints, lawsuits and soon-to-be-updated ADA requirements. Ensuring all students and families have access to online school resources is also the right thing to do.

Andrea Gosfield will discuss the landscape of ADA compliance requirements for digital offerings faced by schools today. The presentation will cover topics such as ADA regulatory requirements and how they’ve been interpreted to apply to online offerings of schools.
