Web Accessibility



Background

MISD’s web site provides important information to the students, parents, teachers, staff and administrators of the school districts across Macomb County. The site also services people in education and other fields across the State of Michigan and is visited by people across the United States and many other countries.

One of our organization’s primary objectives is to educate and assist people with disabilities. As such, one of the goals of our web site is to ensure that all of our constituents, and the other users of our site, are able to access all of the information we provide.

Accessibility

Making a web site accessible strives to provide equal access for those with visual, motor, auditory, and/or cognitive disabilities. While 19% of the US population has a disability (US Census), approximately 8.5% has a disability that affects computer and Internet use.

 The MISD works hard to ensure that digital communication, products, services, and resources are accessible to people with disabilities. For a web site, that means making sure the site is structured so that:

  • people with visual impairments can use screen readers to hear the content of our site
  • people with hearing impairments can read the closed captioning included with our videos
  • people with mobility issues can navigate the site even if they are unable to use a mouse

Accessibility Plan at MISD

MISD has created a Web Accessibility Project Team that is working to optimize the accessibility and usability of our web site.  To guide our accessibility efforts MISD has created the following documents:
