Web Project Calendar
The milestones identified take into consideration infrastructure development and represent targets for meeting accessibility requirements. To mitigate risk and cost, campuses are urged to begin implementation as soon as possible.
May 15, 2007: Completion of the First Year Web Report. This first year project will assist campuses in conducting a self-evaluation of the accessibility of their websites and in planning for remediation. View the First Year Web Report.
June 15, 2007: Submission of the Web Accessibility Implementation Plan and First Year Web Report. View the Web Accessibility Implementation Plan.
No later than September 1, 2007: New and updated administrative websites, web applications, and web content produced by the CSU or by third-party developers should, at a minimum, conform to baseline accessibility standards as defined in Section 508, Subpart B, and where appropriate, Subpart C (http://www.access-board.gov/sec508/standards.htm ). This timeline applies only to administrative sites. The deadlines applied to instructional sites are provided in the Instructional Materials section of this memo.
May 15, 2009: All administrative sites that are critical to institutional access (as established in the Web Accessibility Implementation Plan) should, at a minimum, conform to baseline accessibility standards as defined in Section 508. If remediation or replacement of the website is not possible or would constitute an undue burden, then a plan to provide an equally effective alternate form of access must be developed, documented, and communicated.
May 15, 2012: All websites at the CSU should fully conform to Section 508. Once again, undue burden plan requirements (as described above) apply.
