For 100 years, the Grosse Pointe Public School System has benefitted from a sturdy local tax base, state financial support, and ample federal funding, making our school district the envy of our peers nationwide and the crown jewel in one of the healthiest and robust communities in the state. Yet the future is not what it used to be.
Recent school closures, a global pandemic, and budget deficits that have impacted public schools everywhere threaten the long-term viability and success of the very heart of the community we call home. And even the generous contributions of kind benefactors, dedicated parents, millage supporters, and volunteer fundraisers may not be enough to bridge the gaps that the future portends. There needs to be a bigger initiative, a bolder endeavor, and an even deeper commitment from everyone impacted by this revised version of the future.
