The Red Lion Area School District (RLASD) is committed to making its electronic and information technologies accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d), as amended in 1998. Section 508 is a federal law that requires organizations to provide individuals with disabilities equal access to electronic information and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the organization. The Section 508 standards are the technical requirements and criteria that are used to measure conformance within this law. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found at www.section508.gov.

Adobe Acrobat PDF Files
A number of the documents on the RLASD Web site are in HTML or ASCII (plain text) formats. These formats are generally accessible to people who use screen readers. The District also has a large number of documents in Adobe Acrobat® Portable Document Format (PDF).
PDF format is used to preserve the content and layout of any hard copy documents. Publications in PDF can be viewed and printed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader®, version 3.0 or higher. The downloadable Acrobat Reader software is available at NO CHARGE from Adobe Systems, Inc.
People using screen-reading devices generally are unable to read documents directly in PDF format, unless they have an accessibility plug-in installed on their system along with the Adobe Acrobat Reader. This plug-in is available at NO CHARGE from Adobe. Adobe also has online tools that will convert PDF files to HTML on request. To get the plug-in and latest news about Adobe's accessibility tools and services, visit the Access Adobe site.
Requesting Alternative Formats
The Red Lion Area School District will convert any documents into alternative formats to meet the needs of those who use our information. For more information, contact us.
