Greenville's Online Privacy Protection Act
Greenville County Schools believes that technology is an important resource for enhancing the education of students with the most effective web-based tools and applications for learning. To provide students with access to web-based resources and to comply with federal regulations, including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), pertaining to the confidentiality of student information, Greenville County Schools has considered the educational value of and entered into agreements with several third-party computer software applications and web-based services. These third-party providers include Edmodo, Google Apps for Education, Office 365 for Education, and other similar educational programs. A list of the programs with the terms of use and privacy policy for each can be found at the Greenville County School’s COPPA Page.

Parent Portal

We hope that you have logged into the Parent Portal. It is an excellent tool that gives you access to your child's grades, attendance history, lunch account balance, and more. You can also sign up to receive emailed updates about your child's progress. Before using the Parent Portal, you must pick up your login and password in person from the front office. And bring your ID! The Parent Portal App is now available on Google Play and iTunes. Our district code is DZDX. More details about the Parent Portal can be found here.

School Supply List

Summer Reading Challenge
Summer is a time for relaxation and…reading, of course!  Many children forget some of what they have learned over the summer months and even lose gains they have made during the school year.  However, a multitude of research shows that reading just four or five books during the summer may keep a struggling reader from regressing (Kim, 2004). 
Please encourage your child to participate in our school’s Summer Reading Challenge.  Students will receive a Bingo sheet of reading activities before the end of the school year.  Students who complete the Summer Reading Challenge Bingo sheet will be invited to the library for a celebration.  Your child will not want to miss it!
Most importantly, please encourage your child to read every day.  All reading counts, including comic books, graphic novels, audiobooks, recipes, magazines, etc.  Reading aloud to your child is important at any age, as well.  Thank you for all you do to partner with us in helping your child succeed!
