Accessible Educational Resources Portal

Welcome to the Seattle Public Schools’ Accessible Educational Resources Portal.

The district is committed to ensuring that communications for district-sponsored programs, events, and activities are accessible to district students, staff, families, and community members with disabilities.

The purpose of this page is to provide information about accessible technology and resources to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to access website content, software and equipment.

Resources

Our Resources webpage includes detailed information and guides to assist in making documents, communications, web content and technology accessible for all. We continue to update information and resources, so please check back to make sure you have the most up-to-date information. SPS Accessible Educational Resources page.

Equal Access is the Law

young student with assistive deviceIn addition to the day-to-day importance of web and technology access for people with disabilities, it is the law. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Washington State’s Law Against Discrimination prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities.

People with disabilities must be afforded equal access, regardless of their disability, to programs and services that are provided by the district.

Equal access and nondiscrimination require that the district:

  1. Ensures that communications with people with disabilities are as effective as communications with others,
  2. Makes reasonable modifications of policies and practices, and
  3. Removes communication barriers to ensure an equal opportunity to access website content, software and equipment.

Seattle Public Schools is committed to making sure its technology, including websites, content pages, and software programs meet guidelines for equitable access and recognized accessibility standards.
