2020-2021 GCS Virtual School
In response to the needs of our community, GCS has added a new full-time virtual option for students in grades 5K-12. Unlike eLearning, which was implemented under emergency conditions during last spring's school shutdown, students in the Virtual Program will have a normal daily instructional schedule, earn grades, and receive timely teacher feedback in response to class or homework. Teachers experienced in online platforms and virtual instruction will help and support student engagement using live and recorded lessons and tutorials. We have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions for your convenience and review.
If you want your child(ren) to participate in the GCS Virtual Program, please complete the application linked below. Because staffing the virtual program requires the removal of teachers from traditional classrooms, we are asking parents to commit to a full year of virtual instruction. However, if a family requests a transfer back to brick and mortar instruction before or at the semester break (January), we will work for a mid-year transition, so long as appropriate space is available.
If you want to participate in the GCS Virtual Program during the 2020-21 school year, please complete this application as soon as possible so we can properly staff both our virtual and traditional programs. The application will remain open through July 27. If you have additional questions, you can submit them at firstname.lastname@example.org .

New Transportation Form for 2020-21
Greenville County Schools is asking ALL families who will have a student or students enrolled for the 2020-21 school year to complete a new Transportation Request Form. The form should be completed for EVERY student, including bus riders, car riders, walkers, bicyclists, and daycare bus riders.
It is very important to complete the form so GCS can efficiently plan for how students will arrive and depart campuses daily. It is particularly important for students who have moved or changed schools.
In order to ensure school bus transportation on the first day of school, forms are due by Friday, July 31. School bus requests submitted after July 31 will not be routed until after Labor Day.
