Gwinnett County Public Schools Updates Plan for Fall 2020

Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) is making plans for a safe return to the important work of teaching and learning for students and employees in school year 2020-21. Although the district had planned to begin with both in-person and digital instruction, the current COVID-19 situation required a change in those plans. On July 20, the school district announced it would return to school on August 12 with all students receiving digital instruction.

GCPS leaders continue to study guidance from the Department of Public Health and the Georgia Department of Education in planning for the safest, most effective opening of school this fall. The district also has gathered input from our students, families, and employees of the district, as well as other community members.

Please read the information linked below to learn more about Gwinnett’s return to learning. Details for the 2020-21 school year will continue to be shared there and in SchoolMessenger updates, including plans for a return to in-school instruction once that is possible.
