Accessibility Statement

Welcome to the City of Santa Clarita’s official website! The City of Santa Clarita strives to maintain a website that is accessible to people with disabilities, in compliance with California Government Code Section 11135.

How are we doing with accessibility?
Technology Services is continuously working on achieving and maintaining the City’s current goal of Level A accessibility.

Our website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:

  • Use of semantic headings and structure
  • Continuous implementation of ARIA Landmarks to help assistive technology users to navigate to and past blocks in a web interface
  • Declaring a language attribute on the HTML element enables a screen reader to read out the text with correct pronunciation.
  • Implementation of appropriate alt text
  • Use of unobtrusive JavaScript
  • Logical Form Layouts
  • Improved color contrast

The City of Santa Clarita works with third-party providers, organizations and entities ("online service providers") who provide various online functions and services on the City's behalf. These online service providers are solely responsible for the accessibility compliance of the services they provide. Online service providers are contractually required to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act whenever they represent or provide functionality on behalf of the City, including their provision of online services on behalf of the City.
