Annual AKS Public Review
Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) invites GCPS families, Gwinnett county residents, students, and GCPS staff members to participate in the school district’s review of the Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) curriculum Sept. 4 through Sept. 28. The public may review proposed standards online, offering feedback on AKS that have been developed to align the curriculum with the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) and/or Georgia Performance Standards (GPS). Click here for a list of the courses with AKS under review. To review the AKS and provide feedback, please click here to begin. Comments will be accepted through Thursday, Sept. 28.
What: Annual AKS Public Review Opportunity
When: Now through Sept. 28
Good afternoon Bronco Families,
Throughout the school year, a variety of surveys are given to students, staff, and families to gather feedback and information. There are no new surveys this year, but we wanted to direct you to the district website to review any surveys that students participate in during the year.
For more information, please visit https://www.gcpsk12.org/Page/35333.
Family Learning NIght
Come on out for a night of learning and fun! Doors open at 6:00 PM, but you can drop in anytime before 7:30.
All students will be photographed on September 19th for the 23-24 Head Elementary yearbook.
Have you accessed your Parent Portal account recently?
We know that families want easy access for need-to-know information about their student's education— from records to resources. Just as important, you want an easy way to stay in touch with the school.
The updated GCPS Parent Portal gives parents access to grades, assignments, and communication with teachers. The GCPS Parent Portal gives families a direct line to the classroom, with 24/7 real-time information and anytime, anywhere access, with in-portal translation in multiple languages.
For more information regarding the GCPS Parent Portal (or to register for an account), please visit: https://www.gcpsk12.org/Page/26042
Please note that the GCPS Parent Portal is different from the new ParentSquare app. Parents should access both tools to ensure they have up-to-date information for their student!!
