​Accessibilit​​y Support

Building accessible course content and materials for online, hybrid, and in-person instruction takes time and attention to detail. RCCD DE personnel are available to help faculty increase the accessibility of their content to support all of their students.

Accessibility Requirements
The Americans with Disabilities Act sections ADA 504 & ADA 508 in addition to multiple CA Government Codes require all online content be 100% accessible to all students. Per CA State and RCCD’s Chancellors mandates, RCCD faculty are responsible to ensure that all course content and materials (including publisher content) is 100% accessible for all students. Above and beyond this 100% accessible content, some students may need additional accommodations and assistance from both their instructor and DSS/DRC support staff.
