Thank You Grand Rapids! 

Dear Students, Parents, Staff, and Community Members,

On behalf of the Grand Rapids Board of Education, I want to thank you and the voters of Grand Rapids for the remarkable support we received on Election Day and the days and months leading up to the vote.

We live in such an amazing community! This vote is further evidence of our community coming together to support our kids and ensure they have the right tools and learning environments they need to succeed. It is about keeping the energy, excitement, and momentum going around the success of the GRPS Transformation Plan.

We are going to be very intentional in how we organize, plan, and invest the bond proceeds that have been entrusted to us by the voters and taxpayers. Just like with the Transformation Plan, we are going to plan the work and work the plan. We are going to engage our stakeholders every step of the way to ensure the voices of our students, staff, parents, and community members are part of the implementation. It's the GRPS Way!

Thanks again for your trust, your confidence, and your support!
