AL$ Featured Partners' VPATs
AL$ featured partners have submitted a VPAT (voluntary product accessibility template) with Academic Technologies and have been reviewed by CSU Center for Accessible Media. Each partner is reviewed for compliance and proactive planning. They have submitted qualifications and parameters for provision on campuses and partnering with bookstores.
Our goal is to help you choose the best available materials for your students, including those with disabilities, that will help them reach the desired outcomes most successfully.
AL$ efforts support Section 508, in that instructional materials developed or implemented must be accessible to all students, regardless of disability. However there may be times where you should collaborate with your campus Disability Support Services to ensure your materials are accessible and available in a timely manner.
As new pilots and programs are developed, tested, and/or deployed, generic accounting templates for campus bookstores and collaborating campus departments are compiled. For a copy of any generic accounting template, please contact the CSU bookstore liaison by email. Sehrhorn@calstate.edu
