The Berkeley County Board of Education is
committed to making its electronic and information technologies accessible to
individuals with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d), as amended in 1998.
Section 508 is a federal law that requires agencies to provide individuals with
disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to
those who do not have disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on
the agency. The Section 508 Standards are the technical requirements and
criteria that are used to measure conformance within this law. Berkeley
County Schools frequently audits its sites for accessibility using the WAVE Accessibility Evaluation Tool
accessibility options in web platform through its web host,
Schoolwires/Blackboard. To learn more
