Dear Parents and Community,

Grand Ledge Public Schools is a  Community Committed to Excellence. 

District Assessment
The district initiated focus groups that met over the past three months. All buildings and sites have been evaluated to develop a list of potential projects that support current and future programming needs. In addition, safety and security, educational programs, enrollment changes, and traffic flow were evaluated.

After several meetings, months of study, and determining what is best for the district, a potential direction is being discussed. This direction includes some restructuring within our district that will provide the necessary spaces and stability required for our students in the future. Restructuring, as well as the heavy demands that wear and tear on our buildings, would require significant building repair and expansion. To do this, a bond election would be needed, possibly as early as November 2018.

Potential restructuring would include: 
  • Have all elementary buildings house grades K-4
  • Holbrook would become an elementary building for grades K-4
  • Moving grades 5-6 to Hayes; while researching gifted and talented programming for advanced students
  • Moving grades 7-8 to Beagle; providing opportunities for students to take advanced classes at the high school (within walking distance)
  • Early Childhood programming would be at Neff and Delta Mills
  • Grades 9-12 would remain at the High School
Your Input is Valued
An important part of this process is gathering feedback from our parents, community and staff members and it is a great opportunity for you to help frame the future of Grand Ledge Public Schools.
