(Correction is in bold letters)
Students who are identifying themselves as transgender are protected based on a ruling by the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati to occupy gender-separated facilities in public school buildings according to their personal gender identity. Recently the same court upheld a ruling that discrimination based on gender identity, or non-conformity, is prohibited. While this ruling is being reviewed by the United States Supreme Court, schools are required to treat each student as they are gender-identifying themselves, while we refer to them by their identifying pronouns and proper names, allowing them to wear clothing that corresponds to their gender identity, and allowing them to use restroom facilities and other gender-separated areas, regardless of their assigned sex at birth.
NOTE: George Long Elementary School is no longer accepting Schools of Choice applications for Kindergarten through 5th grade students with IDEA Individual Education Plans (IEP) for the 2017-2018 school year.
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.
The GSRP program runs Monday through Thursday, 8:00 AM-3:00 PM, beginning September 5th, 2017. The program is located at Little Warriors Preschool & Childcare inside the George Long Elementary School building.
