Grand Island Public Schools engaged in a collaborative process including students, staff, parents and community members on best ways to use Federal ESSER resources. The district sent out a survey and conducted stakeholder meetings to get feedback on possible ways to use the funds.
GIPS has also gathered feedback from families, staff, students and community members on a safe return to school plan for the 2021-2022 year. The district is NOT required to mandate masks in the safe return to school plan in order to receive Federal ESSER funds.
GIPS intends to use the Federal ESSER resources in accordance with the established parameters to address student learning needs and to promote health and safety.
