A GCPS Partnership Event

  • GCPS schools host community leaders for American Education Week

    During American Education Week (November 14–18, 2022), members of Gwinnett’s business community and civic leaders took the opportunity to walk in the shoes of a school leader as a “Principal for a Day,” and, in one case, “Superintendent for a Day.”

    A group of 115 community leaders participated in the annual event, which is co-sponsored by the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce and GCPS. Participants met with students and staff, observed lessons, and participated in classroom activities. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta was the presenting sponsor for the breakfast for participants on December 1, 2022, with Peach State Federal Credit Union and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) Georgia serving as leading sponsors, Gwinnett Technical College as a supporting sponsor, and Leadership Gwinnett as a table sponsor.
