BOE-BOC Joint Study Task Force

          Task force seeks citizen input on
          improving school system-county collaboration

          A Joint Study Task Force has been meeting since September 2002 to consider
          ways to improve collaboration between Gwinnett County Public Schools and
          Gwinnett County government. The citizen task force-- appointed by the Gwinnett
          County Board of Education, Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners and the
          Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce-- is gathering feedback from the public about
          how county government and the school system can enhance working relationships
          for the good of the community and its citizens

          The task force will use feedback gathered in this questionnaire as members
          develop recommendations for enhancing school-county cooperation in areas of
          mutual interest, specifically planning, operations, and infrastructure. The results
          will be included in the task force’s summary report to the Board of Education and
          the Board of County Commissioners next fall.

          As part of that process, the public is invited to participate in an automated telephone questionnaire.

            Here’s how to participate in the questionnaire:
            1.Call (678) 377-8901, anytime— 24 hours a day— between now and
            5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 28. This is a local call.
            2. When asked, punch in Questionnaire Number 1200.
            3. Then, callers just follow the instructions using their telephone keypad to
            indicate their answers.

            The questionnaire takes about 10 minutes to complete. Citizens participating in the questionnaire also will be given information on how they can share
            additional comments by e-mail.
