Abstract

American students in K-12 education are guaranteed access to the general curriculum under the 1997 Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. In many cases, access is not possible for persons with disabilities when curricular content is Web-based. A study conducted by WebAIM found that only 6% of K-12 education Web pages meet even a minimal level of accessibility. WebAIM has and continues to conduct research, develop resources, and provide tools for increasing Web accessibility in K-12 education. Our research finding will be presented and we will provide resources and tools for others to use in hopes of increasing awareness of Web accessibility and establishing partnerships to further this important work.
