ADA Website Accessibility Policy

Mount Clemens Montessori Academy is committed to making its website accessible to students, prospective students, parents, Academy staff, visitors and members of the community with disabilities, particularly those with visual and hearing impairments or who otherwise require the use of assistive technology to access information.  All content uploaded on the Academy’s website, and new, updated and existing content provided by third parties will conform to the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 or updated equivalents of these guidelines to the extent possible.

With regard to the Academy’s website and official web presence which is developed by the Academy and developed, maintained by, or offered through third parties, the Academy is committed to compliance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (section 504) and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (Title II), so that students, prospective students, parents, Academy staff, visitors and members of the community with disabilities have accessibility to the same programs, services and activities as those without disabilities; and thus are not excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination  regarding programs, services and/or activities delivered online. 

A student, prospective student, parent, Academy staff, visitor or member of the community with disabilities who wishes to submit a complaint regarding a violation related to the accessibility to the Academy’s website may file a complaint directly with the Website Accessibility Coordinator.  Complaints shall be submitted in writing, via email or online using the Website Accessibility Complaint Form.  When the Executive Director or another Academy administrator receives a complaint, he/she will forward the complaint to the Website Accessibility Coordinator.
