At Grand Ledge Public Schools, we are "Growing Learners, Preparing Students,” and I am proud to be able to share with you information about our school district and how it works towards its strategic plan.

I also provide leadership with the visual identity and brand guidelines for Grand Ledge Public Schools.  This Google Drive folder with "branding" assets/files helps.

If you want a more thorough explanation of what the Communications Department does for Grand Ledge Public Schools, you can watch my presentation to the Board of Education from Jan. 8, 2024.

Distribution of Flyers 

Some administrative rules and practices have been put in place regarding sharing information, and the following is from the Certified Staff Handbook:

All flyers to be distributed to students or displayed in a school must first be approved by the Communications Office or the Superintendent’s Office.

If approved, flyers advertising programs offered by a nonprofit or public entity may be distributed to students and may be made available to students and parents through a display in the school.

Flyers advertising programs offered by private (for profit) individuals, groups, or organizations shall not be distributed to students, but may be approved and made available to students and parents through a display in the school.
