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.

HB 91; ELIMINATION OF GEORGIA HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION TEST REQUIREMENT

An individual (hereinafter referred to as “Student”) no longer enrolled in a Georgia public school and who previously failed to receive a high school diploma in this state or was denied graduation solely for failing to achieve a passing score on one or more portions of the Georgia High School Graduation Tests or its predecessor or the Georgia High School Writing Test or its predecessor may petition the local board of education in which he or she was last enrolled to determine the student’s eligibility to receive a high school diploma pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 20-2-281.1 based on the graduation requirements in effect when the student first entered ninth grade.

DESTRUCTION OF RECORDS OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

In compliance with both Georgia Special Education Annual Program Plan Under P.L. 94-142 and Gordon County School System Comprehensive Plan for Special Education policy on destruction of data collected, maintained or used in the provision of a free appropriate public education for students with disabilities and/or exceptional children in the Gordon County School System, the Department of Special Education announces its intention for destruction of data.
