(GCPS) New starting date 2014-15 school year

Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) has released a revised 2014-15 school calendar that calls for the district to return to school on Tuesday, August 5 – one day earlier than originally scheduled. The change in the calendar is due to the need for a student/teacher holiday on November 4, which is Election Day. This day was originally slated to be a school day; however, as this year’s election includes several major races, including contests for Governor and a vacated U.S. Senate seat, election traffic is likely to be high.
