GSRP Update Typically by now we are in the process of notifying and enrolling our GSRP children into the preschool program. Unfortunately at this time, the ISD has not been granted funding for the 19-20 school year. Any programming for the upcoming year is dependent on the inclusion of GSRP in the State School Aid Act which has not been finalized in Lansing. We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing, however, it is completely out of our hands. Until the state has a budget and the ISD is granted funding for the GSRP program, we are not given “slots” for the program. The legislature is expected back in session next week and we do still plan to start GSRP September 9. As soon as we are notified, our parents will be notified.
