Gordon County Schools has launched an online learning platform that will allow students and teachers to work safely from home when weather conditions prevent safe travel to our schools.
New for 2019-2020
Not all days missed due to inclement weather will be designated as online learning days. The superintendent will determine when online learning will be utilized. We realize that during a weather emergency that there could be sporadic power outages and internet unavailability. Upon return to school, students will be given five school days to complete any work assigned that may have not been completed. Under extenuating circumstances, such as consecutive absences due to weather-related issues, students may be given additional days to complete assignments. The superintendent will communicate expectations and plans in case of multiple inclement weather days.
For assistance with assignments, utilize the email feature within Schoology to communicate with your child's teacher.
For Technical Assistance with Schoology, please email your child's Instructional Technology Specialist:
Elementary- Caroline Stephens at firstname.lastname@example.org
Middle and High- Chuck Langston at email@example.com

Go to gcbe.schoology.com or the Schoology app. Note: It may be necessary to choose the child's school.
