State and Federal regulations, as well as some district policies, require the district to annually post certain notifications to the public. Many of these notifications are distributed several ways, including print. We also provide a number of the common notifications below.
Notices of Discrimination Policy: Board Policy 102 states: The board will not discriminate in its educational activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed, socio-economic status, religion, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or marital status. There is a grievance procedure for processing complaints of discrimination. If you have questions or a grievance, contact the BCSD Equity Coordinator Mrs. Jill Janes, , at BCSD, 500 7th Street, Boone, Iowa 50036; (515) 433-0750.
Ensuring Website Accessibility for All
General Statement: In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as well as with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Boone Community School District (BCSD) has made, and continues to make, efforts to ensure content on all of its websites is accessible to everyone – including individuals with disabilities and users of assistive technology.
Standards: BCSD uses the accessibility standards of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 level AA, with the exception of video content which follows WCAG 2.0 level A, as the minimum technical standards to develop and maintain its websites. BCSD exceeds these guidelines in many instances.
Disclaimers: BCSD is aware that some PDF documents on its websites do not currently meet accessibility requirements. BCSD is working to update those documents to comply with modern accessibility standards. If you have trouble accessing any of these documents, please let BCSD’s Communications Department know and it will provide the requested information in an alternate format.
BCSD websites integrate with platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter in an effort to use modern communication methods and to encourage digital citizenship among its users. These services are provided by their respective companies and BCSD is not responsible for their adherence to accessibility standards.
BCSD websites also integrate with Google Translate in an effort to improve access for people who come from non-English-speaking backgrounds. Google Translate is a service provided by Google, Inc. and BCSD is not responsible for its content or its adherence to accessibility standards.
Reporting Accessibility Issues: If you are using assistive technology and having problems accessing any BCSD websites or its content, please contact the BCSD Communications Department at 515-433-0750 and every effort will be made to remedy the issue and/or provide you with the information you are seeking in an alternative format until the issue can be remedied.
