7110 – Introduction


The support and involvement of the home and community are essential to achieve educational excellence in the Grand Island Public Schools. The district strives to maintain an active relationship with the home and community to create within the student an awareness of dignity and worth of the individual, civic responsibility and respect for authority. In providing for the education program of the Grand Island Public Schools, Board decisions will be driven by the GIPS vision to ensure students are prepared to make positive contributions to society and thrive in an ever changing world. In striving to meet this vision, the Board commits to:

  • Every student will be taught to read, write, and communicate effectively; solve problems; acquire and apply knowledge; and demonstrate mastery through performance to the best of the student’s abilities;
  • Every student will be treated with fairness and dignity;
  • Every student will be honored for their unique qualities and backgrounds;
  • Every student will experience a sense of belonging, contribution, and success; and
  • Every student will develop responsibility and show respect for others as well as oneself.

The 7000 series of the Grand Island Public Schools policy manual is devoted to the goals and objectives for the delivery of the education program as described by the mission statement of the district. The board's objective in the design, contents, and the delivery of the education program is to provide an equitable opportunity for students to pursue an education free of discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, age, sex or gender, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition, marital status, or other prohibited status.

The Leadership for Learning Board Committee shall make recommendations to the Board of Education for the goals and objectives of the education program.  At least annually, the committee shall report to the board regarding progress toward achievement of the goals and objectives of the education program.
