Website Accessibility

 

Calvert County cares deeply about accessibility and strives to ensure that people with disabilities are not left behind.  We work deliberately and diligently to ensure our websites are accessible, and we undertake every effort to conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, Level AA. To achieve this, we have appointed an Accessibility Coordinator and developed a cross-departmental team trained in digital accessibility and ADA compliance. We scan our website manually and use technology to identify accessibility issues and proactively fix them. Our accessibility program meets quarterly to discuss identified barriers and how to remove them.

If you use assistive technology, such as a Braille reader, a screen reader or TTY, and run into any difficulties using our website, please call us at 410-535-1600.  You may also reach us through our web form or contact the ADA Coordinator directly:
