1:1 Technology Initiative Update -
As many of you know, Grass Lake Community Schools has embarked on a project to provide each of our Kindergarten through 12th grade students with a personal computing device (iPad or Chromebook) beginning some time in January, 2017, thanks to a large grant from the Thompson Foundation. A tri-fold brochure has been created to share more information about the project and to announce a flexible schedule of parent meetings that will support the process.

WELCOME
The Mission of Grass Lake Community Schools is to provide a quality learning environment that will empower all students to meet their individual needs, discover their potential, and gain essential skills that will enable them to become responsible contributing citizens of our world.

Hi, I'm Dr. Ryle Kiser, Superintendent of Grass Lake Community Schools. Thank you for visiting our website, which will allow you to learn more about our school district and community. We're excited about the progress of our 1:1 technology initiative, which will provide every Grass Lake student with a personal computing device some time during the upcoming school year. This initiative will not only†enhance our instructional processes, but it will provide our students with the necessary tools to prepare them for individualized excellence, while providing a supportive, progressive environment for our teaching staff. It is our mission to provide every student with the personal instruction and guidance they need to be successful.
