Rumors Target Threat To GIHS - Dec. 2012

   Messages were sent to parents of Grand Island School District students regarding a possible threat to the high school. Those rumors have been thoroughly investigated by local, state and federal officers and the rumors have been found to have no merit. Out of an abundance of caution, however, a sheriff’s officer will be present at all schools this morning during arrival. As always the staff will be present in the hallways and outside as well to welcome the children to school.




New Transportation Facility Passes - Dec. 2012

Grand Island School Voters OK New Transportation Center - www.buffalonews.com story
   Grand Island School District residents Tuesday in a 404 to 220 vote approved the $6.37 million project for a new transportation center. The district will build a new 16,000-square-foot building for the school buses behind Sidway Elementary School on Baseline Road and renovate the existing 65-year-old transportation center at the same site for use by maintenance and buildings and grounds. Interim Superintendent Robert W. Christmann said the project “provides the opportunity to increase safety for the students and parents at Sidway because there will be a separate entrance and exit for the buses.” A new ring road just for buses will be constructed to the north of the school and its athletic fields that will loop around the rear of the property to reach the new center and bus parking areas. The project, expected to be completed by September 2014, also includes additional on-site parking. It is eligible for 80.6 percent in state aid, and also will be financed with $1.3 million from a reserve fund, so there will be no impact on the district’s tax levy.

   The Grand Island Schools 2012-2013 Transportation Facility Referendum will take place on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 from 10am-9pm at the Grand Island High School Gym. Public Information Presentations will take place at Charlotte Sidway School, 2451 Baseline Rd. on Thursday, December 6th at 1pm and Tuesday, December 11th at 6:30pm.
   The proposed proposition will authorize the District to borrow the necessary funds as well as authorize the use of District reserves that will be used to fund the project. The referendum value is $6,377,000. By combining borrowed funds with those funds the District has saved and set aside for specific use, the project will have no impact on taxpayers. See flyer for more details.

Superintendent Christmann Announces Resignation - July 2012

A Message from the Board of Education
   It is with mixed emotions that we announce Superintendent Robert Christmann’s resignation from Grand Island Central School District effective Oct. 1. We thank Bob for his six years of service to our district as well as his continued service to education as he steps into a new role as executive director of the Western New York Educational Service Council (WNYESC).
   We support Bob in his decision and, simply put, we wish him the best. Throughout his time at Grand Island, he served our district and community well, extending Grand Island’s legacy of educational excellence. During this time, his superintendent colleagues elected Bob to serve as president of the New York State Council of School Superintendents (NYSCOSS), a role which allowed him to effectively update the board of education on a regular basis regarding state matters that could affect the district. They also elected him to represent NYSCOSS on the Governing Board of the National Superintendents Association (American Association of School Administrators).
   It is under his leadership, that the district and community:
    Passed a $51-million capital project;
   Passed every annual budget;
   Initiated new academic programs, including the International Baccalaureate, Project Lead The Way (PLTW), and Common Core Curriculum;
   Improved student safety by installing traffic controls, an anti-bullying campaign, and after-prom party (to name a few examples);
   Grew the technology curriculum via PLTW and student participation in Western New York Technology Education Association’s Tech Wars competition;
   Promoted one of the area's top music programs, helping the district receive national recognition;
   Assisted in moving the district into the top ten academically as determined by Buffalo Business First;
   Hired eight district and building level administrators, more than 40 new teachers, and more than 30 support staff as well as increased community and staff involvement in the selection process;
   Averaged more than 90 percent high school graduation rate, including 95 percent this past school year; and
    Averaged more than 92 percent graduates attending two- or four-year colleges, a 4 percent increase during Bob’s service.
   We fully expect Bob will continue to work with the district as an interim superintendent through the fall. As a board, we have acted proactively and commenced the search for a new superintendent whom we expect to start by Dec. 31, 2012.
    We will engage the community as we work though this critical process. Please watch the district website at www.k12.ginet.org and Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/GIcapitalproject for updates as we move forward.
    If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. We can be reached at boe@k12.ginet.org.
Thank you,
Grand Island Board of Education

Joseph Giarrizzo to Serve as Director of Business Services - April 2012


   The Grand Island Board of Education is pleased to announce the appointment of Joseph Giarrizzo as director of business services.
   Following the retirement of Loraine Ingrasi, who served as the assistant superintendent for business and finance for the past 8 years, a comprehensive screening process was conducted to ensure the selected candidate possessed the experience suited to meet the high standards of Grand Island Central School District. “Joe was impressive as a candidate as measured by his skills, strong work ethic, high level interpersonal skills and private sector background. Seldom does a candidate have universal praise from every reference over multiple past positions,” states Superintendent Robert Christmann.
   Giarrizzo has served as administrator for business and financial services for the Tonawanda City School District since 2009. Prior to his current position, he was employed as director of financial services for the Niagara Falls City School District from 2002-2009. A native of Niagara Falls, New York, Giarrizzo also served as a member of the Niagara Falls Board of Education from 1998 – 2002 and served as BOE President for the 1999-2000 school year.
   Giarrizzo attended Niagara University and holds a master’s degree in education with a concentration in School Business Administration and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration concentrating in Accounting. He has also earned a master’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Management Theory from Canisius College. Giarrizzo says, “I am looking forward to the experience and to contributing to the many great initiatives taking place in Grand Island.”
   Mr. Giarrizzo will begin his service on May 21, 2012.
