Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) Work Plan
Year One (2006-07): PLANNING AND EVALUATION
The focus of this first year is on planning, policy and procedures development, communication, and training. Just as campuses had to develop transition plans for the removal of physical access barriers, so they will need to create a technology access transition plan based upon a self-evaluation of the accessibility of their IT products and services. A template for this self-evaluation plan will be available to campuses at the end of October 2006. Initial implementation will begin the second half of the year.
Year Two (2007-08): IMPLEMENTATION
The second year begins full implementation of campus plans with the goal of integrating accessibility at the design stage of software, web, and course development, as well as in business and instructional practices.
Year Three (2008-09): ASSESSMENT
The third year begins the assessment process to determine the outcomes achieved and the effectiveness of plan implementation. Campuses will adjust their strategies and actions as necessary based on assessment results.
