Equitable access to instructional materials and assistive technologies is critical to the mission of the Accessibility Director and California Community Colleges. The Accessibility Center Director engages daily with teams of student advocates, college administrators, and software developers to promote assistive technologies, accessibility services, resources, and tools serving all 116 California Community Colleges, with over 3 million students and their support communities.
This Director oversees a team with an annual budget of approximately $1M, to promote technology, tools, and collaborative relationships aimed at improving instructional and assistive technology accessibility and equity. This is a state-wide leadership opportunity with stakeholders from throughout the state, supporting professional associations, advocacy groups, academic and governmental organizations, and the California Community College Chancellor’s Office. The Director works closely with technology teams to ensure accessibility goals are addressed in the design phase for every solution, not added later as an afterthought.
The Accessibility Center Director is responsible for strategies to promote adherence to evolving requirements and best practices, such as WCAG, ADA, and other Federal and State regulations. The position will be presenting, collaborating, evaluating, and answering questions to a broad variety of constituents, driving professional development activities to promote currency with assistive technologies and alternate media, including procurement, self-assessments, scanning tools, and VPAT processes, and providing relevant accessibility feedback to vendors.
The Accessibility Center Director will coordinate review and development of training materials, including webinars and self-paced courses, and promote the adoption of the State-wide Accessibility Standard using the Procedure and Board Policy templates. Statewide travel to support conferences and other outreach is anticipated post-pandemic.
