Statement of Respect

"FCS recognizes the dignity and worth of all individuals." - C. Ford

It seems a simple request. Respect others at all times. However, humans are a very large and diversified group ... and mistakes happen. FCS does not intentionally condone or promote any behavior which is inconsistent with the statement above. FCS believes that it is unacceptable to intentionally demean anyone’s physical, ethnic, gender, personal, racial, religious, or identity based characteristics. As individuals, we must take responsibility for our words and deeds. If by chance a misunderstanding or conflict occurs, it is hoped that all parties will work to clarify their viewpoint and resolve the conflict amicably.

By FCS policy, production websites produced by FCS must meet Federal Section 508 Accessibility standards as well as NYS NYS-P08-005 Accessibility standards, except where they might diverge from FCS usability policies (which does not happen often).
