In an effort to ensure access to Web-based and other electronic resources and services, the Federal and State of Minnesota governments have enacted an assortment of laws that require government Web sites to be accessible to persons with disabilities.

Accessible web pages are constructed to be useable by anyone, even if they are using assistive technology to access the web page. Examples of assistive technology are screen readers, screen magnifiers, voice recognition software, alternative keyboards, and braille displays.

In order to comply with Federal and State requirements all web pages on the Anoka Tech web site must be developed with accessibility in mind. To assist web developers in this task we have provided a checklist for use. Level 1 is the minimum compliance and covers the basic areas which must be covered. We are planning additional levels in the future that will cover more areas.

The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system (MnSCU) is firmly committed to respecting the privacy of all website visitors to the extent permitted by state and federal laws, including the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act, Minn. Stat. Ch. 13. This Privacy Statement of [name of College/University] is intended to explain the ways in which we collect information, the way we will use the information collected, and the protections we will provide the information you choose to give to us.
