Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do the laws require?

    Posted by: Website Accessibility

    The laws require that people with disabilities not be discriminated against, communications with people with disabilities are as effective as communications with others and that the Division makes reasonable modifications of practices to ensure equal opportunity and access to website content, software, and equipment for people with disabilities.

    Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities. These laws mandate that people with disabilities are afforded equal access, regardless of their disability, to programs and services that are provided by public entities. This includes public schools.
