In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, Iowa Civil Rights Act (ICRA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the WCSD  has made, and continues to make, efforts to ensure content on all of its websites is accessible to everyone.

Standards

WCSD uses the accessibility standards of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 level AA, with the exception of video content which follows WCAG 2.0 level A, as the minimum technical standards to develop and maintain its websites.

If you have trouble accessing any of these documents, please let WCSD’s Communications Department, web@waukeeschools.org, know and it will provide the requested information in an alternate format.

WCSD websites integrate with platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter in an effort to use modern communication methods and to encourage digital citizenship among its users.
