Board Policy

Coastline College and the Coast Community College District are committed to providing equitable access to information and data posted on all of its websites and Learning Management Systems. These forms of Electronic and Information Technology (“EIT”) are significant and growing means by which the District provides information to students, faculty, staff, and other constituents. As mandated by state and federal law, the Chancellor shall ensure equitable access to EIT for individuals with disabilities.

All web pages, digital documents, digital content in courses, and other digital resources published, hosted, or otherwise provided by the District, and by each College within the District, must be in compliance with the World Wide Web standards defined in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. These standards specifically identify the WCAG 2.0 Level AA guidelines as the appropriate guidelines to follow when publishing digital content. Library resources cited for course use must also be in compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

The District recognizes the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 Level AA) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as the standard for World Wide Web accessibility and compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. All web pages published, hosted, or otherwise provided by the District, and by each College within the District, must display contact information for the Accessibility Compliance Officer on each College’s website.
