Web Accessibility

  • The EUPISD Board of Education has established policy concerning Web Accessibility, Content, Apps and Services.

    Complaints regarding accessibility of EUPISD website should be directed to the Web Accessibility Coordinator. The coordinator is responsible for investigating complaints of non-compliance and for referring non-compliant websites to the EUPISD Superintendent.

    Such complaints should be filed in writing within thirty (30) calendar days of the circumstances or event giving rise to the complaint so that such circumstance can be promptly addressed. Use of the internal complaint procedure is not a prerequisite to the pursuit of other remedies, including the filing of a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights.

    Web Accessibility Grievance Procedure

    1. The Written Complaint should contain the following information so that the matter can be investigated and so that the Complainant can be promptly provided the information requested:
      1. The name and contact information for the person filing the complaint;
      2. A description of the information not available and/or a description of the accessibility problem; and
      3. A proposed solution.

This complaint procedure contemplates an informal, but thorough investigation.
