Count Day is Wed. October 6th! STUDENT COUNT DAY AND SCHOOL FUNDING • The count days and school funding are mandated through the State School Aid Act. • Count Day is when all public schools in Michigan tally the number of students attending their schools. • Count information is critical to districts because each student translates into state funding. • State aid is based on the number of students legally enrolled on or before count day. Pupils must be in attendance and receive instruction in all classes on the count day. Please make sure that your student(s) arrive at school on time & attend all day, if possible. Thank you!!!

2021 Bond Proposal - Athletic Facility Video Currently, our track and field middle school and high school students must travel to and use other school districts’ tracks for both practices and for all meets. Without a new track facility, our students will not get the chance to practice their skills on a daily basis, reach their performance goals nor perform in front of their own community. Additionally, we do not get to take advantage of the income earnings potential from hosting home events--funds that could be used in our athletic and after-school programs for such things as school events and trips, uniforms, equipment, two-way bussing, and participation fee relief. This facility will be utilized by all our high school students, many middle students, and by community members who would like a safe place to walk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBcyurSEwK8

2021 Bond Proposal - New Buses Video Our bus fleet is an aging fleet that requires increasing and costly repairs to keep them safely on the road. School buses are expensive, approximately $100,000 per bus. The district has purchased one new bus annually for the past few years. However, the fleet still has an average age over 11 years with high mileage rates--an average of over 121,000 miles. From an operations standpoint, it costs significantly more to maintain older, high-mileage vehicles. Utilizing bond funds to purchase three buses eliminates a significant impact (approximately $300,000), thereby leaving those funds for instruction and the operations of the district. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UR9iOHlSlik

2021 Bond Proposal - STEAM and STEM Video For three years, G-A has been adding STEM/STEAM courses K-12. This type of curriculum incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, and Art. These programs are collaborative-based, group-oriented classes where projects are examined integrating all subject areas. Students examine real world problems and develop engineering process-focused solutions. Having the right facilities to grow more STEM/STEAM programming will help us ensure all students receive this education before graduation, keeping the world of possibilities open for each of them. https://youtu.be/ae3FaDPV644

2021 Bond Proposal - Multipurpose Space at the High School We may be a small district, but our high school students still need experiential learning opportunities that increase their preparedness for life after graduation. Having the flexible space of a multi-purpose facility will allow our high school staff to add such things as: large group presentations related to health and safety, career and technical education options throughout the county, job fairs, college application/FAFSA nights, fine arts celebrations, large group projects, robotic competitions, music, speech, theatre, debate, and additional P.E. classes. We need space for indoor marching band practice, flag corp practice, sideline cheer and to start a competitive cheer program. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MovmSpt-Aok
