With approximately 180,000 students, the school system is the state’s largest district. The district has reported nearly 17,000 COVID-19 cases for the 2021-2022 school year, as of Feb. 6.
The district has mandated masks in its buildings and on buses since the school year began in August. District policy states that masks become optional if the Georgia Department of Health reports two consecutive weeks of “moderate” or lower community transmission levels in Gwinnett County.
The responses and ratings will “help the district gain a better understanding of what students, families, staff and community members think about key issues, initiatives and topics,” said a district news release.
