GICSD Board of Education Invites Alumni to Speak Out


The Grand Island Central School District Board of Education would like to invite all alumni from the graduating classes of 2007, 2008 and 2009 to attend an upcoming linkage meeting for constructive conversation.  The meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 5, 2010 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Grand Island High School Senior Cafeteria and will allow alumni the opportunity to share their thoughts on what the district is doing right and what they feel can be done better.  “The more advice we receive from our own students who experienced the school system, the more we, as a district, can improve,” states Grand Island High School Principal Sandra Anzalone.  “We hope alumni recognize the importance of their voice and attend the upcoming meeting to share their experiences.”


For the first time last year, the Board of Education, Superintendent Robert Christmann and alumni from the graduating classes of 2006 - 2008 met to discuss student experiences at GIHS.  The Board of Education listened and as a result, following further study, many important changes have been made within the District.  Some of the changes included:


Members of the Board of Education found the opportunity to converse with alumni very beneficial and wish to continue the meetings on a regular basis.
