Website Accessibility

  • Our Accessibility Commitment

    Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) is committed to delivering web resources accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities, and is continually working to increase and improve the accessibility and usability of its websites.  We actively strive to deliver a web experience that follows the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), specifically the WCAG 2.0 AA criteria.  Current efforts focus on delivering digital content that:

    1. Is compatible with commonly used screen readers and assistive technology 
    2. Has full keyboard operability
    3. Communicates all necessary information without dependency on color
    4. Ensures video accessibility

    These are just to name a few of the ongoing efforts that will result in providing universal accessibility to our web content.

  • Improving Your Experience on Our Websites

    Tips for using your browser more effectively:
    • Use the most current version of your web browser. The latest versions of browsers (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Chrome) generally perform best with websites like ours.
    • Maximize your browser window – This will help you see as much content and functionality as possible.  Our sites are responsive, which means our content and layout adjust to fit the width of your browser window as it changes. (Some content may reorient itself or get hidden as you resize the width of your browser window). Maximize your browser in one of these ways:
      • Use browser buttons to minimize, maximize, or close your browser window.  On PCs, the Maximize button is in the upper right of your browser window.  On Macs, the Maximize button is green and is in the upper left of your browser window.
      • You can also use the keyboard.  On a PC, hold down the Alt key while you press the spacebar.  Then press the “X” key to select Maximize.  On a Mac, hold down the Control and Command keys while you press the “F” key to view in full screen.  On some versions of Macs, you may need to set up a specific keyboard shortcut to do this.
