Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI)

Timelines

Current timelines set by the Chancellor's Office are as follows:


Web Accessibility

May 15, 2007: Completion of the First Year Web Report.

June 15, 2007: Submission of the Web Accessibility Implementation Plan and First Year Web Report

No later than September 1, 2007: New and updated administrative websites, web applications, and web content produced by the CSU or by third-party developers should, at a minimum, conform to baseline accessibility standards as defined in Section 508, Subpart B, and where appropriate, Subpart C (http://www.access-board.gov/sec508/standards.htm). This timeline applies only to administrative sites. The deadlines applied to instructional sites are provided in the Instructional Materials section of this memo.

May 15, 2009: All administrative sites that are critical to institutional access (as established in the Web Accessibility Implementation Plan) should, at a minimum, conform to baseline accessibility standards as defined in Section 508. If remediation or replacement of the website is not possible or would constitute an undue burden, then a plan to provide an equally effective alternate form of access must be developed, documented, and communicated.

May 15, 2012: All websites at the CSU should fully conform to Section 508. Once again, undue burden plan requirements (as described above) apply.


Instructional Materials

June 15, 2007: Draft submission of the campus Instructional Materials Accessibility Plan (IMAP)

July 1, 2007: Campuses will implement the IMAP provisions related to timeliness of alternate formats for print-based instructional materials such as those reflected in points #1 to #4 of Coded Memo AA-2007-04. These provisions should impact the timeliness of materials for the first academic term of Calendar Year, 2008.

Fall Term, 2008: New courses and new course content, including instructional materials and instructional websites, will be designed and authored in a manner that incorporates accessibility. If incorporating accessibility is not possible or would constitute an undue burden, then a plan to provide an equally effective alternate form of access must be developed, documented, and communicated. Existing course content will be made accessible at the point of course redesign or when a student with a disability enrolls in the course.

June 15, 2007: Final submission of the campus Instructional Materials Accessibility Plan (IMAP)

Fall Term, 2012: Instructional materials and instructional websites for all course offerings will be accessible. Once again, undue burden plan requirements (as described above) apply.
