Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) invites parents, community members, and school district employees to apply to serve on the GEMS Oversight Committee, a group of community and school system representatives charged with the annual review of the Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum. The group’s next meeting is scheduled for November 7, 2019. A that meeting, the committee will review the AKS and recommend revisions and additions to CEO/Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks. Mr. Wilbanks uses this information to make his recommendation for adoption to the Gwinnett County Board of Education.
Applicants interested in serving on the committee, which calls for three-year terms, can go online to complete an application. The downloadable application can be found here and on the GCPS website.

Alvin Wilbanks Instructional Support Center, located at 437 Old Peachtree Rd. NW in Suwanee.
