Dear EGRPS Community Member,
On behalf of the Board of Education, administration, and staff, I would like to thank you for your strong vote of confidence and support for East Grand Rapids Public Schools through your passage of a new Recreation Millage that will replace our existing millage in 2024.
Since 2004, the District’s Recreation Millage has supported after-school programming that has not only enriched the lives of our students, but also has protected vital resources for our core educational mission. The stability in funding provided as a result of this millage passing removes a major uncertainty from our long-term plans for sustainable programming and allows strategic planning to proceed in earnest without the potential challenge of a major loss in funding.
We are also grateful that the community supported the City’s Parks Improvement Millage that will allow for the replacement of playground structures on school properties over the next several years. Over the next few months, the planning and community involvement process will be developed. As this planning begins in partnership with the City of East Grand Rapids, the district will provide further updates. It is expected that this process will require a minimum of 12-18 months before construction timelines can be determined.
I am proud to be part of a community that values high quality public school education for all students, and I am committed to continuing that work every day. Through the dedication of our teachers, support staff, and administrators, I am confident that our District will continue to set the standard for excellence in education in the years ahead. 
With gratitude,

Heidi S. Kattula
