Returning Special Permission Students
Students who are currently attending Eastside on Special Permission received an intent to return form on November 24th.  These forms must be signed by a parent/guardian and returned to Eastside by Wednesday, December 3rd so the student will be able to return to Eastside High during the 2015-2016 school year.

Change in Assignment Lottery Window
A Change in Assignment Choice Lottery Window will be available from Monday, December 8 through Friday, December 19, 2014 where parents can submit a choice form for up to three schools at their number one choice school. Since order of receipt of form does not impact assignment, parents will not be allowed to line up at schools.  Click here for more information.  Feel free to call Eastside High School (864.355.2800) with questions or to schedule a tour!

New State Testing for all 11th Graders
Beginning this spring (April 2015), all 11th graders in South Carolina will be required to take two assessments.  One assessment will be the ACT WorkKeys which will measure career readiness and is used nationally as a part of job placement.  The other assessment will measure college readiness and the test has not been determined at this point.  Please click here for more information.

High School Exit Exam No Longer Required
Beginning with the Class of 2015, students will no longer be required to pass the state’s high school exit exam to earn a South Carolina diploma. Also, students who did not receive a diploma due to not passing the exit exam may file a petition. More information can be found here.

Student Parking Lot Sold Out
Unfortunately, the student parking lot at Eastside High school is currently sold out.   If a student would like to be placed on a waiting list for a space, he/she may do so if meeting all the criteria to purchase a parking pass (regular or restricted license, Alive at 25, vehicle registration and insurance).  To be placed on the waiting list, the student should see Mrs. Morgan in the front office.

Alive at 25
Only Graduates of the Alive at 25 Program may apply for a parking permit at Eastside; however, as of September 8, 2014 the student parking lot is sold out. Students may still want to take the class in case spaces open up or for next year.  Click on the link below to find available classes.
