Accessibility Policy and Guidelines

 

The Quincy Public Schools is committed to providing accessible, usable, and aesthetically pleasing design of its web pages for all users, but most particularly for users with disabilities. We follow specific Commonwealth Enterprise Standards designed to meet the needs of our citizens with disabilities. The Commonwealth enterprise standards are generally based on standards used by the Federal government for technology accessibility for people with disabilities, and web content accessibility guidelines developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). For more information about the Federal standards, please visit the Section 508 web site or the Federal Access Board web site.

The Quincy Public Schools website is regularly tested using leading web accessibility technologies and reviewed by users to verify that this web site is compliant with applicable standards.

About Portable Document Format (PDF):

Throughout the Quincy Public Schools website are documents created in Portable Document Format (PDF). We create PDF files using the latest version of Acrobat (file conversion software for PDFs), which is the most accessible technology currently available for these types of files. In order to improve viewing of these files, please download the latest version of Adobe Reader, which is available for free at the Adobe web site.
