Online Accessibility

The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect. — Tim Berners-Lee

SBCTC is committed to providing access to information technology for people with disabilities, including students, employees and the general public. This includes the content of this website. 

The Washington state community and technical college Accessible Technology Policy: Vision, Mission, Policy Statement and Recommendations for Adoption was approved by the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges in March 2016. The policy outlines the system-wide commitment to provide equal, effective, and meaningful access to the benefits of technology for individuals with disabilities

To meet this commitment, we aim to comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Conformance Level AA.
