Committee on Accessible Technology Oversight (CATO)
The Committee for Accessible Technology Oversight (CATO) was formed in response to the approval of the State Board Accessible Technology Policy. CATO advises several SBCTC councils and commissions on matters of accessibility and technology, while supporting the creation of annual work plans and monitoring progress on their achievements. The committee is also responsible for making recommendations, establishing guidelines, and disseminating best practices for technology accessibility.
