DISTRICT ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • It is with tremendous pleasure that I welcome you back to Gordon County Schools for the 2021-22 school year as we count down to the first day of school on August 5. We are thrilled to have you as a member of the Gordon County Schools family and appreciate the opportunity to partner with you in your student’s educational journey.

    This past year presented numerous unique challenges compromising the education of our students on a historic scale across the nation. No one could have predicted the impact the Covid-19 pandemic would have on the lives of our students and community. Looking back over the past year, I am reminded that even amid uncertainty, resiliency grows. With that, we are looking forward to getting “back to the basics” this school year with some new programs and renewed policies. Please check gcbe.org for the most up to date back-to-school information as well as follow both your school and the Gordon County School System on all social media channels! We will continue to connect with you providing more specific information as we get closer to our opening day.

    As your superintendent, I continue to be grateful for your support. Without your support, we would not have been able to continue serving the children of Gordon County to the extent that we did last year. Thank you for making this possible and thank you for entrusting us with your precious child.

    I look forward to seeing everyone August 5!
