Calvin Watts spent much of his first year leading Gwinnett County Public Schools discussing and starting to address longstanding inequities and instill a more caring culture — changes he felt essential amid the pandemic and in the wake of the massive nationwide demonstrations for racial justice.


Ongoing work by him and other leaders in Georgia’s largest school district took shape in several new initiatives focused on closing achievement gaps, reducing class sizes, reforming school discipline, increasing kindergarten readiness and literacy, along with the overarching “Blueprint for the Future.” His staff recently unveiled a division focused on equity, one of the central themes in Watts’ tenure.
