• In 2019 GCPS launched a communitywide campaign to invite input on updating the Strategic Priorities for the next decade. Many stakeholders were involved in crafting what is now called the Strategic Direction for 2020-2030. Like its predecessor, the Strategic Direction for 2020-2030 consists of 10 components or “drivers” that guide our day-to-day work. Each driver is either a school district responsibility or it can be influenced by the attitudes and actions of those within the organization. Communication has long been a priority for the district and remains one of these drivers.
