The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) is committed to ensuring that its electronic and information technologies are accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA.  The WCAG guidelines are the technical requirements used to measure compliance.
