Technical Education Department
The Technical Education Department with Gwinnett Online Campus offers elective courses that are directed toward a career pathway for our students. Career pathways are created and approved by the state Department of Education and Gwinnett County Public Schools. A student may select a technical career pathway which includes a sequence of technical courses in a concentrated area or they can take stand-alone technical courses to meet their elective graduation requirements.
In addition to the technical courses offered through Gwinnett Online Campus, specialized programs and pathways are also available at the School of Math, Science and Technology, Grayson High School Technical Education Program or at Maxwell High School of Technology.
The National Education Technology Standards for Students is addressing the need for basic technology competence and is working to create national standards to ensure that technical knowledge and skills are incorporated into all areas of the curriculum so students can be effective learners and productive citizens in the digital age in which we live.
All instructors will hold at least one chat a week according to the schedule posted in each course. These chats are designed to enhance student mastery of the AKS and to provide an opportunity for remediation, reinforcement, and extension. Students are required to attend these chats or listen to the chat recording within 48 hours. Students will then complete an assignment that accompanies each chat. Each of these assignments will be factored into the classroom assessments category of the student’s grade.
