How Do You Find Out About Gwinnett County School Closures?

As of 2015, Gwinnett County Public Schools announces school closures on all major television and radio stations in the Atlanta metro area. The school system also publishes closure announcements at its official website, Publish.Gwinnett.K12.GA.us and on GCPS TV.

In most cases, the decision regarding school closures is made before 6 a.m. on a school day. The superintendent is responsible for making this decision, and he uses input from the Georgia Department of Transportation, the Georgia Emergency Management Agency and other public safety officials.

If inclement weather arises during a school day, the school system makes cancellation announcements through its website and via local radio and television stations.
