Parents and students who want input into how Gwinnett County Public Schools will hold classes this fall have until 9 p.m. Friday to add their opinions.
The school system has set Aug. 5 as the date to start school with the hopes of opening school buildings for traditional, in-person instruction. Depending upon government or health department mandates, the return to in-person classes, digital learning or a hybrid of both. But officials want to know what those most affected want to do.
As administrators look at options for starting the new year in person on school campuses, there are many logistics that must be considered as plans develop.

Leaders are studying guidance from the Department of Public Health and the Georgia Department of Education in planning for the safest, most effective opening of school this fall.
The public is invited to go online to read the list of approaches that GCPS will implement to make the return to in-person, on-campus instruction as safe as possible for everyone. This is considered a starting point, assuming students and staff will be at school for in-school instruction. Plans may be revised between now and August as more information is made available.
