Dr. Steve Flynt, Gwinnett associate superintendent for school improvement and operations, discusses the district’s new plan and preparations for classes in the summer and fall.

On May 1, the Gwinnett County school system released a new plan to bring employees — including teachers and support staff — back into the building in late May.

Under this original plan, teachers would have been expected to return to their classrooms on Monday, May 18, and work for a week to close out the school year.

That idea drew some criticism from teachers and parents, who expressed concerns about health and safety.

On May 6, the school system released a new, revised plan.

On Wednesday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Dr. Steve Flynt, Gwinnett associate superintendent for school improvement and operations, joined host Rose Scott to discuss this new plan and how the district is preparing for classes in the summer and fall.
