sp tlight Grand Haven Area Public Schools Vol. 24 No. 3 O ur district has completed over 40 information meetings regarding our May 6 ballot proposals over the past two months. During those meetings, we communicated important information about the Non-Principal Residence Renewal, which generates over $17 million in revenue to maintain GHAPS programs. In addition, we shared the GHAPS Board of Education's careful consideration of two bond proposals which provide a 10-year sustainability plan for critical technology enhancements, infrastructure improvements, safety and security upgrades, as well as necessary classroom repurposing and expansion in areas of program growth. These carefully thought-out improvements are based on the board's very speciļ¬c short and long-term goals on the basis of need, not wants or wish list requests. Their primary focus is on maintaining quality 21st Century Learning environments, and doing all they can to assure that our students (wherever their gifts may lie) are prepared for a changing post-secondary education environment, as well as a changing workplace. Please take the time to thoroughly review the details of each proposal described within this special edition of Spotlight, as well as their value, not only to our students, but to our community. Thank you for your consideration. by Keith Konarska, Superintendent For the latest on Grand Haven Public Schools Subscribe to the Grand Haven Tribune 616-842-6400 or vist In Print, Online, Anytime!
