The Georgia Virtual School 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 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. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found online.
We are continually working to increase the accessibility and usability of our digital resources to comply with WCAG 2.0 of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This includes improving the accessibility of our course content. Georgia Virtual School students are provided with tools and resources to support learning for all students.
