Community Education and Facility Scheduling for the 2016-2017 School Year
COMMUNITY EDUCATION
Community Education classes will continue to be offered in Grand Blanc Community Schools facilities.  We are pleased to announce an expanded partnership with Grand Blanc Parks and Recreation and it is they who will be overseeing future community education classes.  Since Community Education cost the school district approximately $160,000 annually, this partnership allows the district to reduce costs by moving the management of Community Education to Grand Blanc Parks and Rec.  More information will be provided as details are worked out.  Any new information will be made available on our district website.  Stay tuned!

FACILITY SCHEDULING
The scheduling of district facilities will continue, as it has in the past, using our district’s School Dude scheduling software.  However, a new district facilities informational webpage is being created.  When completed, the new webpage will provide staff and community members with specific instructions for scheduling facilities and information regarding the fees associated with them. 
An online payment feature will be added, through the existing system, that will save time and effort for the district and the facility requesters. 

As these enhancements are included into our new informational webpage the community members and staff will see little to no change in how they have scheduled facilities in the past. 
The goal is to manage our facilities, while serving our staff and community, in an even more cost efficient way.  Mr. Jeff Wilson, our energy manager, will be overseeing the district’s facility scheduling beginning July 1st.  Integrating facility scheduling with our energy management initiatives will provide the district with a greater opportunity to increase our overall energy savings in the years ahead.

Summer hours at Central Office (8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) will begin on Monday, June 20, 2016.  They will conclude on Friday, August 26, 2016.
