Making Web Content Accessible

Our new Web Accessibility site describes the standards and the steps for remediation and compliance to be followed by staff members who create, edit and maintain ACPS web content.

Updating School Website Content​

At elementary schools, a building-level Web Content Coordinator is responsible for creation, coordination, and collection of school website content. A Web Editor assigned to each elementary makes the actual edits.

At middle and high schools, both content coordination and web editing are done by each school's LTI (Learning Technology Integrator).

Teacher Web Sites

Teacher Landing Pages are no longer required by ACPs, and will be phased out in the Fall of 2018.

Current options include ACPS-hosted WordPress sites, and Google sites in the ACPS domain.  Teachers may also continue to use externally-hosted web sites.  (See "Branding Requirements," below.)

Teachers can now specify the web site link used in their school Staff Directory listing.
