Leadership Development - Gwinnett County Public Schools

Quality-Plus Leader Academy

As the state's largest school system, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) values leaders who have the skills and training to lead world-class schools to increased levels of academic achievement for all students. Because of the changing demographics in our schools, school leaders must be knowledgeable about instruction, should articulate the school's vision and mission, and promote a positive school environment in an era of accountability. Quality-Plus Leaders model high expectations for teachers and students, and execute a vision so that these expectations may be realized.

To prepare leaders for the future and the next generation of students. GCPS developed its Quality-Plus Leader Academy (QPLA). The academy provides GCPS professionals with a clear path to development and training. It serves as an umbrella to cover all activities associates with the leadership pipeline in GCPS.
