We need to hear from you!

Each year, GCPS collects feedback from our families about their children's school as part of our commitment to improvement. This year, the school district is partnering with the Center for Educational Effectiveness to give Educational Effectiveness Surveys (EES) that provide feedback on nine characteristics of high-performing schools. Those characteristics are: 

  • A clear and shared focus
  • High standards and expectations for all students
  • Effective school leadership 
  • Strong communication and opportunities to work together
  • What we teach, how we teach, and how learning is aligned with state standards 
  • Frequent monitoring of learning and teaching 
  • Focused professional development 
  • Supportive learning environment
  • High levels of family and community involvement 

In addition, the survey asks about two other areas associated with high-performing schools- district support for improvement and respect for diverse cultures and backgrounds.  


The survey will be available for you to complete through Thursday, February 29. We hope you will lend your voice to making Gwinnett County Public Schools the best it can be for our students.
