 NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
We're glad you have stopped to see our school district's website. Our district enrolls over 1,290 students in our pre-school through 12th grade system in three buildings. We are continually working to improve our students' academic achievement by increasing rigor, while promoting relevance and relationships with our students. We are located in the Township of Grass Lake in Jackson County in the south-central area of Michigan, just south of Interstate 94, approximately 20 miles west of Ann Arbor and 10 miles east of Jackson.

Urinal Stalls Have Been Added to Elementary Boys Bathrooms
As of Friday, December 8, 2017, several boys group bathrooms at George Long Elementary School have been fitted with closable stalls around each of the existing urinals to accommodate privacy of all individuals using the facilities.
 
It must be clear that these bathrooms are still designated as boys’ and girls’ bathrooms and we expect that boys and girls will use their respective facilities, unless genuinely identified as the opposite gender from when they were born, or they are gender nonconforming (GNC), and they have completed the notification process described below.  
 
Notification Process if Student is Transgender or Gender Nonconforming -
1. If a parent/guardian and/or student notifies the District’s administration that the student is transgender or GNC, the school should request this notification in writing. After notification, the administration should:
a. Identify the students’ particular needs according to his/her circumstances, which may vary         
depending on where the student is in his or her gender transition.       
 
Full guidelines for working with transgender and GNC students can be found at http://bit.ly/2ybNWoj.
