The Gwinnett County Board of Education made what one Gwinnett County Public Schools official called “minor changes” to the district’s student code of conduct policy on Thursday, but this is not the end to changes that will be coming to address student behavior and discipline.

In fact, Thursday’s vote to adopt the changes was more of a beginning than an ending, with other related GCPS policies expected to come under the microscope in the coming months.

Discipline is out of control in GCPS. If the Board cannot handle their jobs then the State should step in.
