Navigating an OCR Complaint Against Your District’s Website

You are busy posting new content to your school district's website when you receive a letter from the United States Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The letter outlines a complaint alleging that the school district discriminates on the basis of disability because certain of the district’s webpages are not accessible to students and adults with disabilities. Now what? School districts from across the country, and several from within IU13, have been served notice by the Office for Civil Rights that their websites are not ADA compliant. While the investigation process may create fear, if you take the proper steps, your school district can successfully negotiate a resolution agreement that puts a plan in place to respond to the allegations and resolve web accessibility issues. This session will share more details about the OCR process and provide tips on how school districts may be able to proactively avoid a complaint from the OCR.
