A vibrant public school system is a vital part of a prosperous community. Guilford County Schools (GCS) attracts jobs and families to our area. In partnership with Guilford County’s seven colleges and universities, GCS is essential in providing employers with the talented workforce that they need.
With a $1B annual budget, more than 70,000 students, 126 schools and a little under 10,000 employees, GCS is also a major economic and cultural force in our community—and its graduates will shape our community for years to come.
In short, education is everyone’s business.
GEA is relentlessly optimistic about the future of Guilford County. Our community is on the cusp of some incredible opportunities, and we want to ensure that our public schools help us seize those opportunities. That is where GEA’s advocacy work comes in to play.
