American Education Week – November 13-17, 2023
Whatever role you play in educating students - teacher, aide, bus driver, nurse, administrator, counselor, custodian or any other role at Greenville County Schools – you are a vital link to every child's success! To honor the district’s amazing staff, GCS is celebrating American Education Week November 13-17, 2023. This week is set aside to shine a light on those who give selflessly each day to ensure success for every child and highlight the team effort it takes to make that happen.
As part of our American Education Week campaign, GCS is encouraging employees to celebrate both the teams they are on and the teams around them every day. Their schools, centers, and locations are letting them know they are appreciated and sharing photos of these employees on social media using the hashtag #gcsAEW23. GCS will post videos on this page of the website throughout the week to honor our dedicated staff members.
During the week, GCS will celebrate its 11,000-plus staff members who are keeping students engaged, providing meals, developing and improving technical skills, transporting them to clean, safe school buildings, connecting families to schools virtually and developing out-of-the-box solutions to whatever unique circumstances each child faces.
GCS will recognize employees each day of the week in the following categories:
Monday – School Support Staff
Tuesday – Transportation Staff
Wednesday – Educators
Thursday – Operations and Maintenance Staff
Friday – District Staff
