Gwinnett County School District is one of the ten most financially efficient in the state, according to the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement.
New data released last week gives Gwinnett four and a half out of five stars for its Financial Efficiency Star Rating. That rating is determined by the district’s three-year average College and Career Ready Performance Index —a measure of how well students are prepared for higher education and the workforce — and a three-year average of the amount it costs to educate each student.
Gwinnett County spent an average of $7,979 per student in 2016.
This high ranking means Gwinnett County delivers relatively high quality results for a relatively low cost.
This isn’t the only praise Gwinnett schools has gotten from the state recently. Twenty-three Gwinnett County schools were named among the state’s best by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, and 10 were among the most improved.
