Grand Ledge Public Schools appreciates all of those who took the time to participate in our High Reliability Schools survey process. Thank you; #proudtobeacomet! This survey gave us valuable information about the perception from key stakeholders, including administrators, staff, families, and students, about whether or not GLPS is a safe and collaborative learning environment. Our district and building level leadership teams are already examining the results and using them to help improve our processes and celebrate our successes. If you have questions about the results or the survey itself, please contact assistant superintendent for academic services Dr. Bill Barnes at firstname.lastname@example.org. The results of the survey can be found at GLcomets.net/HRS.
