Annual Budget and Transparency Reporting

Section 18 (2) of the Public Act 94 of 1979

The State School Aid Act has been amended, which requires each school district and intermediate school district to post certain information on its website within 15 days after a board adopts its annual operating budget or any subsequent revision to that budget. The Annual Budget and Transparency Reporting is an opportunity to communicate to our community on how we utilize the resources that are provided to us. 

On Monday, November 9, all GHAPS and retired/resigned staff that worked in the 2019-20 school year received an email from Deputy Superintendent, Scott Grimes regarding the Teacher and School Support Staff COVID-19 Grant.  

This Department of Treasury Grant is for eligible staff who meet their requirements and were employees both before and during the school closure in March of 2020.  Many positions such as pre-school, substitute teachers, online teachers, and administrator/directors do not qualify per the Department of Treasury.

Those staff members who wish to appeal their eligibility due to not qualifying, may do so by submitting in writing to Scott Grimes at
