  • A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

    Gordon County Schools will remain closed to in-person instruction through the remainder of the school year, our teachers continue to create meaningful distance learning opportunities electronically, as well as paper materials, as needed. Individual schools will communicate with families regarding accessing new material and submitting completed work for the remainder of the semester. I am so thankful for the dedication of our parents and other caregivers to ensuring that our students continue academic work during this time. I know doing this puts another responsibility on our families that no one was prepared to handle. With all of this in mind, we created an adjusted timeline for completion of course work and a framework for grading so that no child’s grade is negatively impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and our school closure. Now through May 5, teachers will continue to provide instructional activities Monday-Thursday each week. May 6-15, students who are behind or need additional time will continue working with their teachers and may submit work through May 15th. May 18th-22nd, we will finalize student grades, and individual schools will hold virtual recognitions and end of the year celebrations. Information specific to high school graduation will be announced at a later date.
