We are excited to welcome our students back on Wednesday, January 5th! We wanted to share a few quick facts before our first day back: -We ask that students and staff members displaying symptoms of the Covid-19 illness please remain at home. -Students missing school due to a medically related absence will be marked as excused. Students will be able to complete their work through Schoology or make up missed assignments -Gordon County Schools will continue practicing mitigation measures including encouraging distancing when possible, practicing enhanced cleaning procedures of all rooms and buildings, limiting visitors, encouraging hand-washing, and making hand sanitizer available. -A detailed outline of the Gordon County Schools phases of mitigation can be found at https://www.gcbe.org/covidprotocols. -Gordon County Schools encourages you to follow the guidance from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the DPH (Department of Public Health.) The latest information released from the Georgia DPH and the CDC can be found online at https://www.gcbe.org/coronavirus as well as links to additional Covid-19 resources. We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday!!

The Gordon County Board of Education has been recognized by the Georgia School Board Association (GSBA) as an Exemplary School Board for 2021. Designed to highlight best practices in school governance and leadership, GSBA developed state standards for governance that lay the foundation of the tiered awards and recognition program. Exemplary status is the highest level of distinction achievable, requiring school boards to meet a strict set of criteria including demonstrating accreditation compliance and exceeding training requirements.
