A reminder from Café Gwinnett: The Free- and Reduced-Priced Meal Application must be filled out each school year. (Even if you filled one out in the spring, you need to fill out a new one for the coming school year.) The online application for 2020-21 is now available at http://gwinnett.schoollunchapp.com. Note that those eligible for free- and reduced-priced meals may be able to access other types of public assistance or services that may be available during this pandemic.

The Strategic Direction for 2020-2030
To prepare for the next decade, GCPS launched a community-wide campaign to invite input on updating its Strategic Priorities for 2010-2020. That update is called the Strategic Direction for 2020-2030. Like its predecessor, it will be a significant guide for the school system’s work, now and in the future. Learn more about our Strategic Direction and the
drivers that will help the school district build upon
what is best about it today to ensure it
becomes the best it can be tomorrow…
a system of world-class schools.
