About G.A.C.


The Genoa Academic Committee was formed in 2012 to encourage, promote, support, and reward academic excellence for students, while also working together with the GHS staff, parents, and community members to assist each student in his/her personal pursuit of academic growth.

The committee has been meeting monthly to discuss future plans and goals for the organization. These monthly meetings are open to any community members, parents, staff, and students.  Thus this far the group has established its executive members and parent reps for each high school graduating class.  In addition the committee has also begun establishing future goals.  Such goals include but are not limited to:

  • Providing additional funding for academic needs that are not addressed by the district due to financial constraints
  • Establishing a tutoring program where approved students can serve as tutors to other students who are struggling academically in different subject areas
  • Developing positive public relationships where a focus can be placed on scholastic achievement of our students
  • Promote and provide financial support to the technology program in order to enhance the skills, tools, and technology opportunities to our students
  • Recognize and reward our students academic success through quarterly incentives, end-of-the-year honors banquet, etc.
  • Work collaboratively with staff to aide in additional classroom resources through grant opportunities and community members/local business donation
