Office of ADA Compliance
The Office of ADA Compliance (ADAC) works to coordinate District efforts under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and to ensure District programs, services, activities and websites are accessible by students with disabilities as well as parents and community members with disabilities. The District’s Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan under Title II of the ADA was adopted by the Board on October 10, 2017, and serves as a blueprint for focused activities by ADAC.
ADAC monitors bond construction, the Rapid Access Program (RAP), and other activities, and provides ADA technical guidance to District offices, divisions and departments. ADAC reviews District practices with respect to program accessibility, and creates supportive policies and training for ADA compliance.
By increasing awareness of disabilities and accessibility requirements under the law and District policy, ADAC joins in fostering a culture of inclusion for students and other individuals with disabilities, and positioning students for success through accessible school environments.
Los Angeles Unified School District (District) is committed to ensuring that the content on its website and web pages are readily accessible. The District’s website is designed to ensure that people with disabilities can effectively access, understand, navigate, and interact. The website and supporting web pages are a combination of new and old technologies, and new and old content. This means that the majority of the District webpages are compliant with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. However, the website contains links to school site, departmental, agency, and third-party websites and features that may not be Section 508 compliant. Some existing content may meet only the minimum required compliance standards. The District will be resolving this by encouraging schools and departments to update their existing websites and continuing efforts to monitor and maintain acceptable compliance levels. This may not include third party websites since the District does not maintain or controls these sites.
