More than 450 GCPS retirees set to seek new horizons

May 21, 2021

     As the last school bell rings for the 2020–21 school year, 450 veteran educators and support staff members will mark their retirement from Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS). In total, our 2020–21 retirees have contributed a collective 11,465.2 years of their lives to education, and a total  of 9,362 years to Gwinnett schoolchildren. In fact, 52.7% (236) of our retirees have worked their entire careers—in the classroom, office, cafeteria, bus, or shop—in this school system. Among this year’s retirees, 154 have 30 or more years of service in education, 15 have invested 40 or more years in education, and one retiree has 56.5 years in education! Our retirees include GCPS’ CEO/Superintendent; two assistant superintendents; two executive directors; four principals; veteran central office  leaders; a number of longtime support staff members; and many administrators, classroom teachers, counselors, and media specialists. Whatever their post-retirement plans, hearty congratulations are in  order to all of our retirees, along with our thanks for their service to Gwinnett County Public Schools.

     This list reflects retirees who announced their plans by April 30, and includes only those retirees who requested to be on the list of retirees shared for promotional purposes when they completed  the GCPS Retirement Office questionnaire. A number of retirees chose not to be included.

Congratulations to this year’s GCPS retirees!
