    ON TIME, ALL DAY, EVERY DAY

    Attendance Matters!!

     

      

    Remember, “Every School Day Counts”

    Absences can add up quickly. A child is chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month. Additionally, when children are absent, the state reduces school funding and resources toward pay for teachers and books. We all are negatively affected when a child is not in school.

     

    Recuerde, "cada día escolar cuenta
    Las ausencias pueden acumularse rápidamente. Un niño está crónicamente ausente si pierde dos días al mes. Además,
    cuando los niños están ausentes, el estado reduce el financiamiento y los recursos escolares para pagar a los maestros
    los libros. Todos estamos afectados negativamente cuando un niño no está en la escuela.

    New Elementary School Information

    Updates to School and District Websites

    You may have noticed that our school site and District websites look a little different than they did just a few weeks ago. That is because we are launching our sites under a new 508 compliant platform. This new platform is certified to conform to Level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines v2.0 (WCAG 2.0). These guidelines set the compliance standard for Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  Our old websites were not compliant.

    So what does it mean to be “508 Compliant?”
    Websites that are not 508 compliant cannot be easily accessed by people with disabilities. Our new website platform ensures that anyone who is trying to access information about our schools will be able to do so even if they have a disability.

    We want to make sure that our families and community members have ways to get the information they need about their students, our programs and our schools. Moving over to this new platform is just one more step in that direction.

    What is the difference with the new sites?
    Maintaining 508 compliance means that fonts must be a certain size and can’t be hard to read. In addition, the standards also require that the contrast ratio between the text and the background of the sites must be 4.5:1. In addition, we can’t have things like flashing or scrolling text or images without explanatory text. The important piece to remember about this transition is that our websites must be a place where anyone can find the information they need.

    Actualizaciones a los Sitios de Web Escolares y Distrito

    Tal vez han notado que nuestros sitios de web escolares y del Distrito se ven un poco diferente de hace unas semanas atrás.  Esto es porque estamos lanzando nuestros sitios bajo una plataforma nueva.  La plataforma nueva es certificada en conformar al Nivel AA bajo las Reglas de Accesibilidad del Contenido de Web v2.0 (WCAG 2.0).  Estas reglas ponen el estándar de conformidad para la Sección 508 del Acto de Rehabilitación de 1973.  Cambiando a esta plataforma nueva ha mantenido el Distrito conforme a 508.  Los sitios de web anteriores no estaban conformes.

    Que quiere decir ser “Conforme a 508”?
    Sitios de web que no son conformes a 508 no pueden ser acedados por personas con discapacidades.  Nuestra plataforma de web nueva asegura que cualquier persona que está tratando de tener acceso a información de nuestras escuelas podrá hacerlo aunque tengan una discapacidad.

    Queremos asegurar que nuestras familias y miembros de la comunidad tengan varios modos de recibir información que necesiten de sus estudiantes, nuestros programas y nuestras escuelas.  Cambiando a esta plataforma nueva es un paso más en esa dirección.

    Que es la diferencia con los sitios nuevos?
    Mantener conformidad a 508 quiere decir que las letras tienen que ser de cierto tamaño y no difícil de leer. Además, los estándares también requieren que el ratio de contraste entre las letras y el fondo de los sitios tienen que ser 4.5:1.  Además, no podemos tener cosas como letras que parpadean o se desplazan o imágenes sin texto explicativo. El punto principal de recordar de esta transición es que nuestros sitios de web tienen que ser un lugar donde cualquier persona puede encontrar la información que necesiten.
