Board Elections!

The 2018-19 election cycle is upon us! It is time once again for the election of the Great River School Board, the team that directs the strategy of Great River School. The Board is comprised of parents, faculty and members of the community who serve on a volunteer basis.  

This is an opportunity for each of us as community members to participate in the direction of the school. 

The Timeline for the 2018 Elections is:

  • February 16: Board Application is due (Board Application)
  • February 26: Candidate bios and ballots available on GRS website
  • March 11 - 16: Election Week (Conferences March 15-16)
  • March 16: Votes tallied confirming eligibility of voters
  • March 28: Election results submitted to Board
  • Summer 2018: Outgoing, current, and incoming board members meet together at Annual Meeting

 For the 2018-2019 Board, two faculty and one parent seat are up for election. It is also possible to volunteer for the Resources Committee, or the Student Experience Committee.

 If you are at all interested in running for a seat on the Board, or joining a Board committee, contact Julie Gleason at

Facility Forums & Learning Environment Presentations

Our board is hard at work developing the ideal learning environment for our students. Our board meeting minutes from the last 16 months hold detailed information about the strategy that has guided our process, and decisions made so far.

Since November 2016, we have held Community Forums to inform families on current work to develop our learning environment and facility. Link here to a folder that holds the presentations and community forum notes!
