ISBE is committed to making its electronic and information technologies accessible to individuals with disabilities and has designed the ISBE web site to be accessible by everyone. As used in this statement, "ISBE web site" or “ISBE web pages" do not include web sites, applications, or content not owned and controlled by ISBE and the State of Illinois. "Accessible" as used in this statement means a person with a disability is afforded the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability in an equally effective and equally integrated manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use. A person with a disability must be able to obtain the information as fully, equally, and independently as a person without a disability. Although this might not result in identical ease of use compared to that of persons without disabilities, it still must ensure equal opportunity to the benefits and opportunities afforded by the technology and equal treatment in the use of such technology.

The web site was developed to comply with the Illinois Information Technology Accessibility Act (IITAA) 2.0 Standards. Illinois Information Technology Accessibility Act (IITAA) 2.0 Standards are based on the revised Federal Section 508 Standards, which are in turn based on the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Information technologies that are legitimately compliant with the revised Section 508 Standards and/or WCAG 2.0 are also compliant with IITAA 2.0. IITAA 2.0 Standards apply to information technology developed, procured, or substantially modified by State of Illinois entities after January 18, 2018. The web site also complies with WCAG 2.1 AA standards​ where applicable.

Along with state and Federal law compliance, efforts have been made to ensure compatibility with common technologies utilized by the adaptive community such as screen magnification software, screen-reading software, and text-only browsers.​​​
