Section 508

Both Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 require accessibility of technology and access to programs and courses. Each college/district should have a Section 508 policy, along with procedures for implementing it, that addresses procurement of Electronic and Information Technology, accessible Computer Stations, access to Campus Web-Sites providing access to Web Enhanced Instruction, providing access to all Informational or Instructional Video Media, and providing access with Alternate Media Formats. The Chancellor’s Office provides an excellent resource to help you with this process, be sure to check it out at CCC Accessibility Center.
