Gwinnett schools to continue weekly assessments after Gov. Brian Kemp closes schools until April 24

As most Gwinnett County schools head into spring break, district leaders will have to plan at least two more weeks without in-class instruction after Gov. Brian Kemp’s latest executive order.

On Thursday, Kemp announced he was using executive powers to extend the closure of public schools in Georgia for in-person instruction until April 24. All public kindergarten through 12th grade schools have been closed in Georgia since March 18 in an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus known as COVID-19. Gwinnett County Public Schools has not hosted teachers or students in schools since March 16.
