Discussions about Suwanee annexing North Gwinnett High School are called preliminary by top officials involved. And the idea, which is targeted for discussion by Suwanee officials in December, was suggested by parent groups from the school.
North Gwinnett Principal Ed Shaddix said Thursday that members of the school council and PTA suggested the idea, and sent a letter to Suwanee officials about the possibility.

The rationale is that the school, located at Level Creek Road and Suwanee Dam Road, and the city are in a "mutually beneficial situation," Shaddix said.
The principal noted that the school has used city facilities for various functions, and that the school also contracts with Suwanee Police for security at football games.
Suwanee City Manager Marty Allen termed the talks "pre-preliminary."
