GCPS introduces digital magazine

Officials with Gwinnett County Public Schools introduced a new, digital format for Communique, an information magazine for families, staff and community members.

The magazine's fall issue featured stories about 21st century skills, Gwinnett's eCLASS digital initiative, online learning options, arts integration and cross-curricular writing.

Sloan Roach, executive director of communication and media relations, said that in providing the magazine format the district was responding to the needs of the community and district.

"We know more and more of our parents and the community are getting information digitally, so this was a move that we thought would serve the community and school district well," she said.

"It allows us to provide more information without the printing costs, and it gives us another avenue to provide more information," she added.

What happened to schools teaching reading, writing and arithmetic? The school board wants to raise our taxes once again. It is never enough for them. It is time to send a messge on November 8 and vote no on more sales tax for schools. GCPS has become a bottomless pit that churns out mediocre students increasingly in need of remedial courses once they get to college.

Wow ! What happened to informed people? GCPS is teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic. To be specific, please review the AKS for each grade and each subject. The school board is asking to renew or keep a SPLOST. This is not raising our taxes, but keeping one that will help with capital projects that will affect and improve every school in Gwinnett county. If you look at the test data and other measures you will see that GCPS has improved year after year after year. When you look at that data and other measures to compare to other school systems in Georgia, Georgia and national averages, GCPS is turning out much better than mediocre students. Yes, some students from all schools, not just GCPS, need remedial courses once they get to college. GCPS is talking to colleges and universities to find out how to improve student success from our schools. I am working with GCPS to help them improve. How are you helping? Just by throwing stones? I WILL vote for SPLOST for GCPS on Nov 8th to help my and our schools get better !

I for one am very excited that the SPLOST will have a focus on technology. My grandchildren who attend GCPS schools need to be in schools with the latest in tech. And the penny special purpose tax is not new. We have had it for years and look at what benefits we have already had. This generation needs to benefit, too! They are no less intelligent nor eager to use tech in a variety of productive ways! Reading, writing, math, science, social studies all are interactive now...what to go positive thinking parents and citizens!
