GOC's Inclement Weather Policy  

Due to the unique learning environment at Gwinnett Online Campus, students have access to course content 24/7. In the event of a GCPS closure due to a weather event, the GOC building will be closed. However, Gwinnett Online Campus will continue to deliver instruction and maintain its regular online school schedule. CORE and Learning Labs will still continue virtually. If there are widespread power outages in Gwinnett County, a plan for makeup days or extensions for due dates will be communicated via email. Extended deadlines are built into many of the courses which already allows flexibility in the case of brief power outages. In the event that individual students experience outages that last for more than a few hours, work extensions will be handled with students on an individual basis.
