Monomoy Regional School District Website Accessibility

We want everyone who visits the Monomoy Regional School District website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

What are we doing?

To help us make the Monomoy Regional School District website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone. Frequent ongoing monitoring will be accomplished through scanning tools and a third-party vendor, and non-compliant elements will be corrected. 

Website Accessibility Tools

The MRSD website has a number of features to help users access the information.

·         Translation – There is a translations tool at the upper left side of the site. Using this tool will help translate information into a variety of languages for our users.
·         Images have alternative text
·         PDFs are tagged for accessibility (in process)
·         Videos are captioned (users can utilize YouTube’s captioning functionality)

How are we doing?

We've worked hard on the Monomoy Regional School District website and believe we've achieved our goal of accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.
