From the President
Grand Ledge Public Schools shall provide diverse learning opportunities of exemplary quality to promote distinguished student achievement.
Welcome to Grand Ledge Public Schools!!
Happy New Year!
I am honored to serve as the President of Board of Education for the 2017 calendar year, Our seven member board sets policies in collaboration with the Superintendent to ensure our fiscal integrity while continuing to keep our students’ academic success as our top priority.
Our district continues to work on a system of prevention/intervention with all our students to ensure they continue to grow academically. Research suggests that the sooner we prepare our children to learn, the higher their rate of success will be in the classroom. With the current success of the Holbrook Early Childhood Center in Grand Ledge, the district purchased the existing Delta Mills Elementary School located on the East side of our district and will convert it to an Early Childhood Center scheduled to open in September, 2017.
My thanks to all the students, faculty and community members who thoughtfully participated by engaging in our survey last spring that served as the basis for developing our 2016, 3 year strategic plan. This plan insures we continue to focus on things our community values while preserving our mission to provide diverse learning opportunities for our children.
We live in a great community, as evidenced by their continual commitment to our schools and facilities. We have seen our community raise over $200,000 to build the Dream Depot 2.0 on the grounds of the Wacousta Elementary School thereby providing a safe outdoor play space for the students and the community at large. Another initiative by our community members is the "Just Turf It!" that hopes to raise $750,000 to turf the high school football field. This would provide greater access for our community by expanding its use to not only football games, but to include marching band, lacrosse, flag football and soccer, to name a few.
Your Board of Education always welcomes your feedback through our email addresses provided on this page or at our board meetings held on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month.
Thanks for all you do to make this a great community for our families. I look forward to hearing from you.
President, Board of Education
