OverviewSuggest Edit

At eChalk, we have provided innovative learning and communication applications to K-12 schools across the United States since 1999. Our design philosophy: Simple, Powerful Design. We believe that our applications must be simple enough that the vast majority of users will enjoy participating without needing any training. We create no features or buttons that aren’t absolutely necessary. And we spend the design and testing time necessary to make everything friendly and intuitive. Our service philosophy: School life is busy and hectic, and school technology specialists are stretched. We understand that if issues do arise you need help right away, so we are standing by to provide rapid response to phone and email requests. We pride ourselves on a reputation for unparalleled support. Our new platform: In 2015, we released our 100% new eChalk Connected K12 Campus application. Starting fresh allowed us to reimagine the place of technology in the life of a school, both within the classroom and beyond. It has also enabled us to build a system using today's newest and best design practices and technologies, so it will be fully ready for the devices and practices in use today..and tomorrow.

Five Steps to a More Accessible School Website

Creating and maintaining an accessible school website shouldn’t be hard. eChalk’s five-step process makes it easy.

Maintaining School Website Accessibility for the Long Run

Website accessibility isn’t a one-time project, but an ongoing practice. Once your site is accessible, how do you make sure it stays that way? Here’s how you can avoid “accessibility entropy” and ensure that new content added to your school website remains accessible for everyone.

Real-Time Information Leads to Better School Website Accessibility

To improve school website accessibility, you first need a baseline accessibility evaluation. Then, you need continual feedback to let you know how you are doing as your site evolves. A built-in website accessibility checker that is native to your CMS can do both.

Who is Responsible for School Website Accessibility?

School website accessibility is a shared responsibility. Half of the responsibility lies with school webmasters and content creators. The other half rests with the developer of the content management system (CMS) that the district is using to create their website.
