Accessibility Statement

Orange-Ulster BOCES (“OU BOCES,” “we,” “us,” “our”) wants everyone who visits our website, (the “Website”) to feel welcome.  We hope all Website visitors will find the experience rewarding. 

OU BOCES is committed to making the Website accessible for all people, including those with and without a disability.  We are continually working to improve the user experience for everyone. 

To help us make the Website a positive and inclusive place, we have been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.  Following these guidelines helps us make the web content on the Website more accessible for people with disabilities.  They also help us make the Website more user friendly in general.

There are three levels of accessibility (A, AA, and AAA).  We have chosen Level AA, WCAG’s recommended level of conformance for entire websites, as the target for the OU BOCES Website.   

We have worked hard on the OU BOCES Website and believe that we have achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility.  We regularly monitor the Website and work hard to maintain this Level of accessibility, while recognizing that some pages may occasionally have accessibility errors.  However, if you experience any problems, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us by email or call us at (845)774-7379. 

Many of the documents available on the Website are in HTML format, which is generally accessible to people who use screen readers.  We also have a large number of documents on the OU BOCES Website that are in PDF format. If you are unable to access the PDF documents with your screen reader, or you have any other accessibility issues, please contact us and we will do our best to provide you with a different format.
