  • Superintendent Message

    Greetings to all as we are well on our way in the 2016-17 school year. Across the nine public school districts in Gratiot-Isabella RESD, approximately 13,000 students are engaged in their courses. I am happy to report that the enrollment numbers appear to have remained fairly steady across the RESD this year. This hasn’t always been the case, with declining enrollment a remnant of the recession of several years ago. These numbers also include students who will be receiving various levels of services from our Special Education Department. Our general education professional development sessions which began in late August will continue throughout the year.
