Website Accessibility

Website Accessibility

Poway Unified School District  is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

This website endeavors to comply with best practices and standards as defined by Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act and level A and AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user-friendly for all people.  We are working to make this site compliant with accessibility standards and adapt to new accessibility standards as they evolve.

If you have accessibility concerns, requests or suggestions, please contact our Website Administrator, Millie Swain at mswain@powayusd.com.
