This section contains an explanation of the institution's guiding principles related to ICT accessibility. The Los Rios Community College District and its four Colleges are committed to providing websites, course materials, documents, and business applications that are accessible to all current and future students, faculty, staff, and other constituents. Student access to inclusive educational opportunities is one of the College's highest priorities and requires a community of stakeholders to design, monitor, and uphold accessible practices. Offices across all campuses work collaboratively to provide an environment free from discrimination and to protect the rights and dignity of students, faculty, and staff. The Accessibility Task Force recommends the following draft policies and regulations for vetting and approval through the participatory governance process.
