Gwinnett County Public Schools has announced it will offer digital instruction for the 2022-23 school year through Gwinnett Online Campus, according to a news release issued Monday, Jan. 31.
Registration for GOC will be open Tuesday, Feb. 1, through Monday, Feb. 28, for Gwinnett County zoned students in kindergarten through 12th grades, marking the first time the option for online instruction is available for grades K-3.
Parents who live in district and choose to exercise the online option will be able to enroll their children in GOC rather than the neighborhood school for which they are zoned, allowing students to attend 180 days of classes digitally rather than in person. In addition to the digital classes, students will still be required to participate in some in-person events to take part in certain labs and testing. Transportation will not be provided to students for the in-person meetings.
Virtual and in-person information sessions will be provided for parents and students to learn more about online schooling through GOC. The virtual sessions will be recorded and available on the GCPS website for later viewing.
