GISD provides educational programs and services supporting the 21 local school districts and 15 public school academies in Genesee County. It also operates special education, career and technical education, early childhood, and early middle college programming. As a regional service agency, the GISD serves as a liaison between the local school districts, public school academies, and the Michigan Department of Education. The GISD Board of Education will select a candidate to fill the vacated seat in a process that is thorough and open to the public consistent with Revised School Code Section 380.614 and GISD Board of Education Policy 0142.5.
