  • Beginning the School Year Online August 5th (Updated July 29, 2020)

    Following Governor Ducey's Executive Order (06/29/20) announcing that school cannot start in-person until August 17, 2020 but can begin online on the original start date, Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board approved to start school on the original date of August 5, 2020, online.  Following the latest executive order on July 23rd, we will transition students to our campuses for in-person instruction at such time as the health benchmarks provided by Arizona Department of Health and the Governor's Office are met.

    • For those students that select GPS Global Academy (full-time online) for their return to school learning model, school will begin August 5th online using GPS Global Academy.
    • For students that select Flex or In-person On Campus for their return to school learning models school will begin August 5th online and these students will transition back to our campuses and their chosen learning model at such time as in-person learning begins.  During online learning, students will be working with their classroom teacher(s) and classmates.  Online learning will be interactive and led by their GPS teacher.  It will not be the same as remote learning delivered at the end of the last school year.

    All 7-12 students automatically get a Chromebook and those elementary students who need a Chromebook will be able to check one out from their school.
