Accessibility Statement

This is the official accessibilty statement for the Topeka Public Schools website. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding accessibility of information on our website, please feel free to contact the webmaster and share your comment with us.

Standards Compliance

  1. We strive to make all of our webpages validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict. However, there are a few exceptions where pages will not validate due to design features, such as dynamically included Google Maps. Where this is the case, we try to ensure that all other markup on the page is valid and semantic, and that adequate information is available about the invalid features to describe their contents to those who cannot see it.
  2. We make every effort to meet Section 508 and WCAG guidelines. With few exceptions (see above), our pages pass verification for Section 508 and WCAG Priority 1, 2 and 3. Where we do not pass all levels of verification, we try to pass as many tests as possible.
  3. All pages on this site use structured semantic markup.


  1. All content images on this site use descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.

Visual Design

  1. This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
  2. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets, the content of each page should still be readable.

Access Keys

We have not yet implemented Access Keys, but we intend to address this soon.
