Change in Assignment School Choice Lottery Window Opens November 14

Greenville County Schools’ Change in Assignment (CIA) School Choice Lottery Window will be available from  November 14 through December 2, 2022 where parents can submit a choice request form for up to three schools for their child at their number one choice school.

Choice request forms are available at every school (except magnet schools) and must be completed and submitted at the first choice school. This form is not available online. 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 Change in Assignment Choice Lottery Window. Parents of 2023-24 kindergarten students should apply during the CIA Lottery Window (do not wait until kindergarten registration). This includes parents who already have a sibling at the school.

A lottery will be conducted and results will be posted no later than February 8, 2023 on the GCS website, reflecting the numerical order of applicants. Results provide the order of applicants by grade for each school only and do not reflect assignment or approval. This list is static and does not reflect waitlist number(s) after initial choice allocations. Parents can access lottery numerical order results by using their CIA choice form number and it is suggested parents take a picture of the form to avoid misplacement of the CIA number. Later, available space by grade level will determine the choice assignments for each school. Requests submitted after January 3, 2023 or later are not posted.

Change in Assignment Choice notification letters will be mailed to parents/guardians by March 31, 2023, advising if the student received a slot at a requested school or if placed on a waitlist. Waitlist number will be provided.

Bryson Boulder


Have you signed up to paint the BES Boulder yet for a special event for your Bear?  It's $10 to rent for the day and information can be found in the sign up links below.

Sign up to Paint

Please note that when you sign up to paint, you can paint the largest boulder.  Please leave the one that says "BES Rocks" and the other smaller ones the way they are.  If the day before is still open, you can reserve both without paying an additional fee.  We just have to make sure spots are available.

Thank you for supporting our Bears.  We appreciate you!
