Your input is needed

As a valued member in your local school community, you can provide information and feedback that helps school leaders make important decisions that affect students and schools. Therefore, Gwinnett County Public Schools would like to ask for your assistance in the crucial process of selecting a principal to replace Mrs. Vivian Stranahan. The Gwinnett County Board of Education and Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks would appreciate your response to a web-based Principal Selection Survey. This survey will help school system leaders gather input regarding the selection of the new principal of Mulberry Elementary School.


You may access the on-line survey at the following web address:

The survey will be accessible beginning today.

Please complete the survey at your earliest convenience so that your input can be used in decision making. Your time and response to this survey is most appreciated.
