Message from the CEO/Superintendent on GCPS Initiatives
Gwinnett County Public Schools' vision is to become a system of world-class schools, and our mission is to pursue excellence for each student. Our relentless focus on the vision and mission have led our school district to make great strides… however, there is still much to do.
In 2009, we invested your time and ours in developing our Strategic Priorities for 2010-2020, which outline the direction in which we as a community wanted the school district to move. These Priorities have helped to keep us focused on our core business of teaching and learning, while helping us move closer to our goal of "world class." They help link our vision, mission, and beliefs to our strategic goals and initiatives.
Currently, our district is focused on three major initiatives… improving teacher and leader effectiveness, developing leaders, and eCLASS. All of these initiatives are tied to our vision and will help move us closer to becoming that system of world-class schools we strive to become and our students deserve. This is part of the culture of continuous quality improvement that is inherent in GCPS as we continue to build on what is best about the school district today to ensure we are even better in the future. I encourage you to stay involved in our schools and to keep abreast of these and other initiatives underway to improve our schools. Working together, we can keep everyone moving in the same direction… toward realizing our vision of becoming a system of world-class schools!
