Accessibility Statement

We want everyone who visits a West Des Moines Community Schools (WDMCS) website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

What are we doing?

To help us make our websites a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for our websites.

The WDMCS websites use platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. However, we are not in control of how these services follow accessibility rules.

How are we doing?

We've worked hard on the each website and believe we've achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please let us know. 

If you have trouble accessing the website, you can contact the office of School/Community Relations. Include the web address, describe the problem, and provide your contact information. They will try to fix the issue or give you the information in a different way. Please email

If you have a serious problem with accessibility, you can file a complaint following the procedures in Board Policy 604.09.
