WIA Compliance

The web pages available at this site are now being developed with the needs of those with disabilities in mind. We are attempting to comply with the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) Web Policies, Standards and Guidelines Documents (as of Nov. 4, 2005) which were developed/derived in part from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) graphic website guidelines and the Federal Rehabilitation Acts' "Section 508" regulations.

At this time, we are not in full compliance. Additionally, at this time we do not have a "Text Only" version of this site. Future revisions of this site should incorporate more of the VITA (and W3C/508) standards and guidelines as our web development resources allow.

If you have difficulty accessing any material on this site because of a disability, please contact us in writing, by telephone or by FAX and we will work with you to make the information available.
