03/19/2014 - Front Entrance Changes
To ensure that all middle schools are safe and secure, the District Office has installed new intercom systems at all schools. The front main doors at Hughes Academy will be kept locked. Visitors will need to press the button to the right of the door, which will connect them with a front office staff member. Once connected, parents and visitors can let the staff member know what they need and the front doors will be automatically unlocked. Visitors will still need to show their ID and volunteers will still need to sign in on the computer. Thank you for your patience as we all all get used to this new system. Please know that the safety of our students and school is our top priority.

Applications submitted with missing information will be considered incomplete and will be eligible for processing in a later round.

Important Information for Applicants
The magnet selection process is not "first come, first serve". However, we strongly encourage ALL parents to submit applications early in the application window. This will allow time to for parents to secure missing documentation if needed.

Early submission is particularly important for parents of applicants who attended a public school located outside of Greenville County as well as all charter, virtual, private, and home-schools located inside or outside of Greenville County. Applicants who fall into these categories must submit 2012-2013 attendance records, 2012-2013 discipline reports and 2012-2013 report cards that are compatible with the official records issued by the Greenville County Schools. Detailed information about the required documentation will be provided on the application. Please refer to the "Out-of-District Applicants" and "Home School Applicants" links on the left side of this page for more information after November 1, 2013.

Parents of students who have been enrolled in a Greenville County School for ALL of the 2013-2014 school year and ALL of the 2012-2013 school year will not need to submit report cards, attendance records or discipline reports with their child's application. The Magnet Coordinator at Hughes should be able to access these records electronically through the District's magnet application system. However, we strongly encourage parents of in-district applicants to submit applications early in the application window just as a precaution!

Frequently Asked Questions Document (FAQ)
Parents must read the District's 2014-2015 "Frequently Asked Questions" (FAQ) document before signing, dating, and submitting completed applications. The FAQ document contains important information that parents need to know about the application requirements, the application scoring process, magnet bus transportation and magnet policies. Parents will be able access the FAQ document on the District magnet website - www.gcsmagnetacademies.org. Hard copies will be available in the main office at Hughes upon request.

Questions? Please contact the Magnet Coordinator if you have any questions or concerns about your child's application. Marsha Patry mpatry@greenville.k12.sc.us. 864-355-6224
