COUNSELOR ASSIGNMENTS

Scheduling an Appointment

  • During digital learning, Gwinnett County School Counselors will continue supporting students' academic success, career development, and social-emotional growth, utilizing Zoom and Google Meet for individual meetings, conferences, presentations, groups, and classroom lessons/activities. 

    Students can schedule (face-to-face or digital) appointments with counselors. More information can be found here.

    To limit the amount of visitors in the building, all parent meetings will be virtual. Please email your student's counselor if needed.

  • Gwinnett Cares has additional up-to-date resources if you need food or other assistance.
