Kanawha County Schools strives to ensure that its services are accessible to people with disabilities. Kanawha County Schools has invested a significant amount of resources to help ensure that its website is made easier to use and more accessible for people with disabilities, with the strong belief that every person has the right to live with dignity, equality, comfort, and independence.

Website accessibility

The Kanawha County Schools district website and school subsites are all powered by SchoolMessenger. More information on embedded accessibility within the platform is available on the SchoolMessenger website:  SchoolMessenger: Our Commitment to Accessibility.

Built-in accessibility features include:

Skip navigation links - These links allow users who rely on their keyboard to navigate a site to bypass the top navigation so they don't have to endlessly click on links to get to the main content on a page.

Keyboard-navigable content - Our navigational menus are keyboard navigable and we’ve spent considerable time making them intuitive for visitors using assistive technologies such as JAWS.

System-required alt and title attributes - When adding non-text content like images or hyperlinks, content editors working within our Presence platform are required to add the appropriate attribute to ensure that people using assistive technologies can understand the content (alt attributes for images and title attributes for hyperlinks).

Accessible data tables - When creating tables for data purposes, we provide tools to ensure the table is accessible.

Text resize - We code our textual content so that it can be resized using standard browser tools.

HTML markup and content structure - All of our design templates have been coded to ensure appropriate HTML markup and logical structure.

Accessible CAPTCHAs - Our CAPTCHAs offers audio alternatives.




Kanawha County Schools continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its site and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use for all.

Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be a result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
