Who can attend the Grayson Technical Education Program?
Juniors and seniors from any Gwinnett County high school (including the Online Campus) are eligible to attend the Grayson Technical Education Program. Students are required to have successfully completed eight units of credit before applying for the Grayson Technical Education Program during winter registration. Rising juniors and seniors must meet all academic credit requirements for their respective grade level by August 1 in order to be enrolled in a Grayson Technical Education Program.
Are classes for a semester or for the full year?
All Grayson Tech programs are year-long classes. At the end of the fall semester, students must have successfully passed all classes in order to remain in their program. Students who have not made sufficient academic progress will be withdrawn and must return to their home school for the remainder of the school year.
What are the class times and days?
7:15 - 9:45 (non-Grayson students)
7:15 - 10:19 (Grayson students)
11:50 - 2:10 (all students)
Do the Grayson Technical Program courses count towards HOPE or NCAA eligibility?
The embedded academic credit, as well as additional science credits earned in select Grayson Technical Programs, will count toward the HOPE GPA requirement. Contact the Grayson Technical Program or your home school counselor for more information. Please contact your student's counselor for information in NCAA requirements and your student's specific needs.
Do I need a parking permit to park at Grayson Tech?
Yes, with the proper paperwork, a Grayson Technical Education Program parking decal will be issued to non-Grayson HS students without charge. This entitles students to drive to the Grayson Technical Education Program only. Students should check with their home school regarding a parking permit for their home school. Students with Grayson High School as their home school will have to meet Grayson's parking requirements. Parking permits will be issued in the Fall.
How do I enroll in a program at Grayson Tech?
Grayson Technical Program has an application process which begins early second semester each school year. Applications will be available inside the student's Eclass page under Additional Resources. We invite any interested students to attend Open House as programs do fill quickly.
Can I attend as both junior and senior?
Yes. Students may also take a different Grayson Technical Program for their second year.
Where is the Grayson Technical Education Program located?
The Grayson Technical Education Program is housed in the Technical Building on the campus of Grayson High School. Our address is 50 Hope Hollow Road, Loganville, GA 30052.
How does my schedule work with my home school?
Students that attend the morning session in the Grayson Technical Education Program will attend periods 4, 5, and 6 (3 and 4 on block) at their home school. Students that attend the afternoon session in the Grayson Technical Education Program will attend periods 1, 2, and 3 (1 and 2 on block) at their home school.
Do I eat lunch in the Grayson Technical Building?
No lunch is provided at the Grayson Technical Education Program. Lunch will be determined by the home school schedule.
Can I take two programs at the Grayson Technical Education Program (stay all day)?
Yes! Students can take both an AM and a PM block class at the Grayson Technical Education Program. The student would more than likely need to select programs that offer a different academic embedded credit, and also take a class through the Gwinnett County Online Campus or during Summer School in order to have room in his/her schedule. Staff at the Grayson Technical Education Program can work with interested students to determine what would work for the student’s schedule and plan for graduation.
Is transportation provided?
Bus transportation is provided to and from the student's home school for AM Block students only. Please see your current school counselor or administrator with specific information regarding transportation from local schools.
What if I have already taken one of the classes that is taught in a Grayson Technical Program?
Some courses that the Grayson Technical Education Programs include are taught at other high schools. If students have earned credit for one of these courses, they will receive an Audit for that specific course. All assignments that are required for that course will still be required and graded, as the program courses are blended and embedded into daily instruction. Students who receive an Audit for a course will be a pathway completer upon completion of the Grayson Technical Program, as all required courses for the pathway will be reflected on the transcript.
Are classes Board of Regents approved?
Each program area has at least one embedded academic credit within the program curriculum. Depending on the program, a student may earn language arts or science credit while taking the courses at the Grayson Technical Program. All classes are Board of Regents approved.
