    The mission of the Grand Island Schools is to inspire all students to achieve their highest potential by fostering academic excellence, personal growth and social responsibility. 

    Our primary goal is to provide an individualized education program for every child in the District, who is classified as a student with an educational disability. A student is classified through the District's Committee on Special Education and Committee on Preschool Special Education.

    Student services available beyond the regular comprehensive educational program are:

    The office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You can contact us at 773-8815 or 773-8816. If there is no answer, please leave a voice mail message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
