From the Desk of the Superintendent 

Dr. Susan Remillard

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Gordon County Schools, and I am glad you are visiting with us to learn more about our school system. This website has been designed with our stakeholders in mind, and I hope you find it easy to navigate and an informative way to stay connected with your child’s education.
The Gordon County community at-large and our school system employees share a tradition of pride in our schools, students and community. Our citizens possess a unique understanding of how a quality education with high expectations and positive results for each student helps us follow our compass for developing a 21st century work ready community, comfortably committed to generating strong ties among students, teachers, and parents.

When a community is united in its commitment to the education of its youth, like Gordon County has demonstrated, good things happen. GCS students’ CRCT/EOCT criterion referenced test scores and performance assessments have documented that we are among the best school systems in the state of Georgia. All of our schools are fully accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). In addition, Fairmount Elementary is a “National Blue Ribbon School.”

The key to motivating our students to achieve high academic standards is a meaningful blend of supportive parent involvement, a strong engaging curriculum consisting of best practices, all brought to life by highly qualified and genuinely caring teachers. The students of Gordon County Schools are blessed by daily exposure to caring individuals, educators and non-educators alike. These qualities are plainly evident and serve as the foundation for the successes of Gordon County Schools.
Again, welcome to our website, and I hope that you will find the information that you need. For further information, you may contact our central office at 706.629.7366.
The mission of Gordon County Schools is to provide a relevant, rigorous, results-based education made possible through supportive, nurturing relationships.

The Gordon County Board of Education has tentatively adopted a 2015 millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 6.42 percent.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at the Gordon County Board of Education Central Office, 205 Warrior Path, Calhoun, GA on September 3, 2015 at 8:00 a.m.

Times and places of additional public hearings on this tax increase are at the Gordon County Board of Education Central Office, 205 Warrior Path, Calhoun, GA on September 3, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 20.000 mills, an increase of 1.206 mills.  Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 18.794mills. The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $57.89 and the proposed tax increase for non-homestead property with a fair market value of $125,000 is approximately $60.30.   For more information, visit the community tab of our website or click here.
