Website Accessibility

Accessibility Statement

We are currently working to bring our website into compliance. We expect Cape Cod Lighthouse Charter School’s web content will meet WCAG 2.0, conformance by February 2019.

 

At Cape Cod Lighthouse Charter School, we seek to understand and respect the unique needs of our students and community. We are committed to ensuring the accessibility of our web content to people with disabilities. All content on our website will conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.
 

This policy applies to all new, updated, and existing web content on www.cclighthouseschool.org. Accessibility checks and training will be incorporated into the publishing workflow for all new website content. In addition, we will ensure third-party content providers are aware of our web accessibility policy and will favor providers based on their accessibility conformance claims.

Each page of the website will include a link to a form providing a method for users to submit feedback on the site; this information will be compiled and considered during the review process. Any accessibility issues should be reported to Mindy Lamothe by email at mlamothe@cclcs.info, by calling Mindy at 774-408-7994 x201. We are interested in any issues we have and how we can adjust them so we are compliant.
 

All areas of the Cape Cod Lighthouse Charter School website will be reviewed annually. Reviews are the responsibility of Technology Director Mindy Lamothe.
 

This policy will be reviewed annually to ensure current compliance and will be reviewed by the Technology Director Mindy Lamothe.
