Plain Language Guide to​ Policy #407, Accessibility​

Under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), organizations are required to prepare one or more documents describing its accessibility policy (O. Reg. 191/11, s. 3).

​This​ plain language guide was created with the goal of being a more reader- and user-friendly version of the full accessibility policy document.

Section 1: Policy Summary

With an ongoing commitment to accessibility for people with disabilities, YRDSB has updated and revised its Accessibility ​Policy (Policy and Procedures #407, Accessibility).

Accessibility Policy #407 and its related procedures are the framework for how YRDSB is building accessible learning and working environments for all members of the Board community, which includes: trustees, employees, students, parents/guardians, committee members, permit holders, vendors, service providers, contractors, volunteers and visitors.

Section 3: General Require​ments (Procedure #407.0)

Section 4: Customer Service Standards (Procedure #407.1)​

​​Section 7: Employment Standards (Procedure #407.4)

Sections 3 through 8 of the plain language guide summarizes each of the six (6) procedures listed above​ in a question and answer format​.​
