E-SPLOST

E-SPLOST on the Nov. 3 ballot

On Nov. 3, Gwinnett County voters will be asked to extend the special purpose local option sales tax for education (E-SPLOST). Over the years, the E-SPLOST has funded educational capital projects that have benefited all students in Gwinnett County. It is important for Gwinnett citizens to be aware of the E-SPLOST and the district's plan for meeting the classroom and technology needs of Gwinnett's growing student enrollment. Learn more about E-SPLOST.

Perception Survey for Parents


This survey should take 10 minutes or less to complete. Its purpose is to gather feedback from parents/guardians about the quality of education that each school is providing. Your name will not be used and your answers will remain confidential. Results are averaged across all parent/guardian responses. These results are used to provide feedback to schools about their performance.

Upcoming Parent Focus Groups

Our third focus group of the year is coming up soon. All are encouraged to attend these meetings. Ms. Keag hosts these regular meetings for parents to share what we are doing well as a school, any barriers to excellence, and any ideas that would help our school community. In our first and second meetings, the topics discussed included school wide communication, cafeteria expectations for students, and other topics suggested by those in attendance. Childcare is available at our school for the November meeting. Ms. Keag is looking forward to meeting with you and listening to your ideas in November.
