About… Gwinnett’s Strategic Priorities for 2010-2020:
1 Document, 10 Priorities. 1 Direction.
“What should Gwinnett County Public Schools be like in the next decade?” That’s the question we asked ourselves and our stakeholders as we developed and fine-tuned the school district’s Strategic Priorities for 2010–2020. On the school system website, you’ll find a number of resources that help communicate GCPS’ strategic direction… how we see the district moving ahead in the next 5 to 10 years and the role you can play in making public education in GCPS even better and stronger as we work together to build a better Gwinnett.

About… The Budget

As we say in our Strategic Priority for Business and Finance, our citizens have come to expect that budget decisions will be made with the long view to ensure that GCPS has the funding to meet both current and future needs. It’s early in the budget-setting process, but check out these links to learn more.

About… Preparing for College
What do I want to be when I grow up? In Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS), we encourage our students to begin exploring postsecondary options early in their K–12 school careers.
