Website Accessibility Guidelines

It is the goal of Pine Plains Central School District that the information contained in our website be accessible to all individuals, including those with visual, hearing or cognitive disabilities. Our aim is to comply with current New York State standards on website accessibility.

What is Web Accessibility?

“Web accessibility means that web, design and content developers are creating websites and web applications without barriers to people with disabilities, so that people with disabilities can navigate, understand, perceive and interact with the Web. The disabilities that are addressed by web accessibility include physical, visual, auditory, speech, cognitive and neurological disabilities. Currently, many websites are not accessible for people with disabilities.

Web accessibility can also benefit people without documented disabilities such as older people who might have vision challenges.”
