Blind Federation: Make K-12 Assessments Accessible to All

Associations Now

Virgin Islands—NFB alleges that the company’s failure to make the tests accessible to blind students during the field testing process violates the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Designed to match the PARCC assessments that will be administered in the 2014-2015 academic year, the field tests are meant to help students and teachers acclimate to the test’s administration process, PARCC states on its website.
