Accessibility Statement

  • General

    At Stafford County Public Schools (Stafford Schools), we strive to ensure our services are accessible to all people. In order to achieve this, we have invested important resources into our site so that it is available to people with disabilities. We believe that website accessibility efforts are vital in ensuring that all users have the right to independence, equality, and ease of use.


    Accessibility on

    Using the audit tool available at,, our website has been scanned for compliance according to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). Since performing the audit, Stafford Schools continues to raise its accessibility standards and now uses a web accessibility widget, Reachdeck, to allow users with disabilities equal access to  www.stafford’s website.



    At Stafford Schools, we are dedicated to continually updating and improving the accessibility of the website and services. We believe that it is our responsibility and mutual moral obligation to provide access to all users. 

    As we seek to continually adjust and improve accessibility issues on this site, we also commit to regularly scanning with an accessibility checker scanner.

    Our goal is to identify and rectify accessibility barriers on our site. Although we strive to ensure all pages and content on are fully accessible, it is possible that some content has not yet been fully adjusted to adhere to the most strict accessibility standards. For this reason we are here to help.

    Stafford Schools has multiple options for those with vision and hearing deficits. Stafford Schools utilizes the universal icon for internet accessibility, a circle with a person inside with outstretched arms. This symbol, which activates the accessibility option, is on the bottom right of the screen on the website. 

    The following actions (among others) are available using the Reachdeck accessibility tool:

    • Text - Users may change the appearance and size of fonts to improve legibility and readability.

    • Text Spacing – White space between blocks of text can help people with cognitive disabilities comprehend sections of a page and call out boxes.

    • Cursor Size – Changing the size of the cursor allows people to locate the cursor more easily.

    • Contrast – Color contrast refers to the difference in light between the foreground (text) and background. Website users who have low vision, low contrast vision, or color vision deficiencies require the ability to change the contrast. Our website allows users to adjust colors or view in black and white.

    • Focus – There are options to assist users with improving focus through a screen mask option.

    In addition, Stafford Schools also uses scanning software available on its web hosting platform to notify the webmaster of potential accessibility issues.

    If you have any issues with accessing content or using, or should you need assistance with any part of the website, please don't hesitate to let us know. You are welcome to contact us at, and we will be more than happy to help.
