Iowa Lakes Community College is committed to ensuring that all programs and services, including electronic and our website, are accessible to people with disabilities. In accordance with the provisions of Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Iowa Lakes provides students, faculty, staff, and visitors with reasonable accommodations to ensure equal access to the programs and activities of the college.
The Iowa Lakes website has been developed to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (as amended). Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers to information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage the development of new technologies to help achieve these goals. This law requires that all individuals with disabilities have access to information and data comparable to that which is available to individuals without disabilities.
There are links to Portable Document Format (PDF) files throughout the college website. Some of these files may not be compliant with screen reader devices, depending on the age of the file, the software used to create the file, the resources available, and/or the knowledge/skillset of the person creating the file. We are actively working to identify and update all PDF files to be compliant. Adobe Systems, Inc., has improved the accessibility features of their Adobe Acrobat software and has developed resources to improve access to Adobe PDF files.
