American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance has been a hot topic for all of us in the education community this year. Now that we understand the guidelines, it is time to learn how to properly produce electronic school documents that are accessible to everyone.

Presenting MSPRA's 2017 Summer Drive-In Conference: ADA Action Lab on Thursday, June 29 at Ingham ISD, 2630 W. Howell Rd., Mason, MI 48854. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. The program runs from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and includes lunch.

This day-long Action Lab features Foxbright ADA compliance experts. [Note: You don't need to be a Foxright client to participate.]  View the conference  post card for more information.

Not only will you learn how to produce compliant Word, Excel, Google Drive and PDF documents, but you will also have an entire afternoon to work one-on-one with the ADA compliance experts from Foxbright. To make the most of this experience, bring your laptop and electronic version of the documents you wish to make compliant.  See the  agenda for more details.
