Grand Island Central School District received two member grants from State Sen. Mark Grisanti. They are supplemental grants approved by the New York State Legislature for special programs available through each legislator.

The grants total $150,000: $75,000 received in 2011 and $75,000 in 2012. The funds from these grants will be used for the purchase of equipment for high school students in the planned technology wing. This sophisticated equipment is necessary to complete the course work for the high school's award-winning Project Lead The Way pre-engineering program.

"The district is proud to offer our students the opportunity to participate in Project Lead The Way. This pre-engineering program has proved to be highly successful and we are thankful for Senator Grisanti's support of our program and our students," stated Grand Island School Superintendent Robert Christmann.
