Maryland State Department of Education Notice of Accessibility

​The Maryland State Department of Education is committed to providing access to our electronic and information technology, including our web pages, for individuals with disabilities in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.  MSDE also follows accessibility guidelines set in place by the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 14.33.02.01-.12. For more information on these regulations, please visit the Maryland Information Technology Nonvisual Access Website.

Section 508 requires us to ensure that  all individuals with disabilities seeking information or services from our Department, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access and use by State employees, or members of the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on us. To meet this commitment, we are in the process of upgrading our web pages to exceed the Section 508 standards.

If the format of any material on our web pages interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact the Department's webmaster using the link in the contact us box included at the end of this section.

Your request will be referred to the appropriate Agency office, and that office will respond to your request. Please indicate the nature of the accessibility problem, the web address of the requested material, your preferred format in which you want to receive the material (electronic format (ASCII, etc.), standard print, large print, etc.), and your contact information.

Thank you for your patience while we upgrade our site to better serve all constituents.
