Web Accessibility Statement
Ferndale Schools recognizes the importance of ensuring our websites are accessible to those with disabilities. We are committed to making our information accessible to visitors with disabilities and are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.
This website endeavors to conform to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.
These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible and the District is working to educate our staff so that the content they may post on their classroom websites will be compliant with the guidelines and be accessible to all visitors.
This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.
Ferndale Schools strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability as comprehensively as possible on this website. We are currently employing compliance service tools that scan our website quarterly and identify non-compliant elements or documents that need to be addressed. We seek to resolve these issues as quickly as possible.
