Accessibility (WCAG 2.0)
FoundationsDigital has been audited by a Third-party. They tested against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Levels A and AA. Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), containing a total of 38 criteria, are developed through the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) process in cooperation with individuals and organizations around the world, with the goal of proving a single shared standard for web content accessibility that meets the needs of individuals, organizations, and governments internationally. All four foundation principles, perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust are in place. The digital materials contained in the pages of the Ramsey Education (The Lampo Group, LLC) Publisher website we reviewed provide an abundance of media content, interesting information, and effective ways to engage users. All recommendations by the Third-party have been implemented for full compliance with WCAG 2.0.
