Web Accessibility

We are committed to making this website accessible for people with disabilities. If you need assistance accessing any content, please email our website accessibility manager or call (616) 254-6556.
To comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the 1973 Rehabilitation Act, Grandville Public Schools makes its website more accessible to people with disabilities through a variety of techniques. We use alternative text with photos and images, tags within PDFs, closed captions for videos embedded on the site, and a consistent page structure and headline hierarchy.1 Our website accessibility manager has attended training by the Office of Civil Rights and our principals have attended special training. The Board of Education's complete web accessibility policy can be found on NEOLA.
Some of our documents on this site are in Portable Document Format (PDF). To view them, you may download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
We check the site with WAVE, PAVE and Monsido. Our web host, Edlio, is committed to providing a platform that meets Section 508 requirements and Level AA conformance to WCAG 2.0.
Our procurement strategy also reflects our commitment to making technology accessible for people with disabilities. Priority is given to ADA-compliant products that have been proven to be accessible through field testing.
The district's Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn feeds have manually input alternative text. Teacher website platforms are being reviewed to ensure compliance features are in place.
Accessible content is helpful for everyone — not just those with disabilities — and our commitment to accessibility is about more than complying with the law: It is about better serving children. Do not hesitate to contact our accessibility manager to report any problems with any features or content on this site.
