School Choice - Change in Assignment School Choice Lottery Window Opens December 5

Greenville County Schools’ Change in Assignment (CIA) School Choice Lottery Window will be available from Monday, December 5 through Friday, December 16, 2016 where parents can submit a choice form for up to three schools for their child at their number one choice school. Choice forms are available at every school (except magnet schools) and must be completed and submitted at the number one choice school. Since order of receipt of form does not impact assignment, parents will not be allowed to line up at schools.  All parents/guardians interested in applying for a possible CIA school choice slot at a school other than their assigned school based on their resident address should apply during the December 2016 Lottery Window.

A lottery will be conducted and results will be posted on Wednesday, February 15, 2016 on the GCS website providing the order by grade for each school.  Names will not be listed.  Parents will access results by using their CIA choice form number. This listing will be the results of the lottery only. Space by grade level will later determine the choice assignments.  Students selecting a school as a higher choice have priority over students selecting the school as a lower priority. 

This process does not include GCS’s magnet schools.   Please directly contact the magnet school of interest. More here:
