Illinois Govenor Pritzker has signed an accessibility law that will impact students with disabilities in Illinios. "House Bill 26 requires that content available on any third-party curriculum service used in all public and private K-12 schools to be Web Content Accessibility Guidelines WCAG 2.1 complaint and readily accessible to people with disabilities, beginning in August 2022."

This is a huge step forward for accessibility prompted by the need for online accessibility during the pandemic.
