Areas of Focus
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.
