New Hartford Central School District Accessibility Statement

New Hartford Central School District (NHCSD) is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone and applying the relevant accessibility standards.

Accessibility Standards

NHCSD has adopted the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as its accessibility standard. WCAG is the universal standard for creating accessible content online. We strive to ensure that all pages on www.newhartfordschools.org conform to at least Level AA of the WCAG.

Accessibility Features

To ensure a seamless experience for all users, we have implemented the following accessibility features:

  • Alt Text: We provide alternative text descriptions for all non-text content to ensure that users with visual impairments can understand and navigate the content.
  • Keyboard Navigation: Our website is designed to be navigable and usable with keyboard input alone, ensuring that users who rely on keyboard navigation can access all features.
  • Contrast: We have optimized color contrast ratios to make content readable for users with low vision or color blindness.
  • Readable Fonts: Our website uses readable fonts with adjustable sizes, allowing users to customize text according to their preferences.
  • Forms and Controls: We have ensured that all forms and interactive controls are accessible and operable, providing a smooth experience for users with disabilities.

Ongoing Efforts

We are actively working to enhance the accessibility of our website. Regular audits, user testing, and feedback collection are integral parts of our commitment to maintaining accessibility. We aim to identify and address any accessibility issues promptly.
