Bulletin Board, Blackboard, and Dry-Erase/White Board Purchase, and Installation Guidelines

This protocol addresses the needs of all users to access standard bulletin boards, blackboards, and white/dry-erase boards. Currently, ADA has guidelines for signage, but does not include bulletin board, blackboard, or white board guidelines. ADA requires that signs be hung at 60” to the mid-height of the sign (ADA, 2002). Although this is useful for signs, 60” places small boards too high for the reach of many users.

I found this tip sheet helpful for guiding purchase and installation of boards, especially for determining how to hang them. However, I wonder if more information could be added considering the environment surrounding the board (i.e. optimizing view of the board and the path to it).

I, myself, was always recognized . . . as the "slow one" in the family. It was quite true, and I knew it and accepted it. Writing and spelling were always terribly difficult for me. My letters were without originality. I was . . . an extraordinarily bad speller and have remained so until this day.
