    We Value Digital Inclusion

    In our effort to provide a fully accessible and optimized user experience for all site visitors, 
    Grand Prairie ISD has taken careful measure to ensure an excellent user experience, regardless of the
    assistive technology being used to access this site or the specific abilities of those individuals
    seeking access to this site.

    The Grand Prairie ISD website is monitored and tested regularly by internal resources and by AudioEye,
    a third-party provider of Web Accessibility testing and monitoring. As issues of accessibility are
    identified, results of automated and manual testing are managed through the AudioEye® Digital
    Accessibility Platform. As new solutions are discovered to improve the user experience,
    remediation is tracked through the AudioEye system and fixes are implemented to improve the
    website user experience.
