IMPORTANT UPDATES

  • Testing for Lead in Water

    In December 2023, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) began participating in the Georgia Department of Education’s statewide “Clean Water for Georgia Kids” program. This program tests all drinking and cooking water taps in schools for lead. Testing began in January 2024 and is scheduled to continue through July. Elementary schools were tested first before moving to middle and high schools.

    To be clear, GCPS has no evidence of a widespread problem with the water quality in any school or building. This testing is a proactive measure to ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, parents, and community.

    According to EPA guidelines, if any test shows lead is present at 15 parts per billion or higher, we will turn off the fixture’s water supply and immediately take action to fix the problem. The fixture will only be used again after a follow-up test confirms the water is safe to drink.

    In accordance with our commitment to transparency, test results for each and every school will be available on the Clean Water for Georgia Kids Website.

    For more information about our testing program, including the schedule, process, frequently asked questions, and test results, visit the GCPS website, click on Schools, and look for “Testing for Lead in Water.”

    Thank you for your continued support of our schools.
