  • Due to the on-going COVID-19 health pandemic, Gateway testing for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year will be suspended.  This includes the upcoming Gateway Alternate Administrations.  As a result, GCPS will offer a waiver to those seniors in the Class of 2021 who have met all other graduation requirements except passing the High School Gateway.
