Beginning Tuesday, January 19, 2021, Greenville County Schools will increase the amount of in-person attendance for high school students from 40-percent to 75-percent. This means students who currently attend in-person classes two days a week on Attendance Plan 2 will attend four days a week, except for one week each month when they have three days of in-person classes instead of four. Career Center students will also see an increase in face-to-face instruction with most Level I and Level II courses returning to 5 days a week. Additionally, high school self-contained special education students will go from 4 days of in-person attendance to five.
“We’ve known from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic that high schools pose the biggest challenge when it comes to returning students to the classroom. This plan allows us to nearly double the amount of in-person instruction at high schools and return most Career Center students to fulltime in-person instruction allowing them to work toward their industry certification,” said Dr. W. Burke Royster, superintendent of Greenville County Schools.
Here’s how the “75-percent plan” works:
Each color group (blue, red, green, purple) will have three in-person attendance days that never change:
Blue—Monday, Wednesday, Thursday
Red—Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday
Green—Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Purple—Monday, Tuesday, Thursday
On Friday, students will attend in-person classes three out of four Fridays each month based on their color group:
Blue, Red, Green—January 22, February 19, March 26, April 30, May 28
(Purple = eLearning)
Blue, Red, Purple—January 29, February 26, April 2, May 7, June 4
(Green = eLearning)
Blue, Green, Purple—February 5, March 5, April 16, May 14
(Red = eLearning)
Red, Green, Purple—February 12, March 12, April 23, May 21
(Blue = eLearning)
Students will engage in eLearning on days they are not physically in class. On eLearning days, teachers will offer streamed and/or recorded instruction.

The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) was created by Greg Blatt, Founder and Executive Director of Coaches 4 Character. It is an annual award given to 74 male and female students from each of the 36 Greenville County middle and high schools. It will honor one male and one female from each middle and high school in grades 8 and 12 who are considered the true “unsung heroes” in their schools. These are students who might go unnoticed for one reason or another, students who are role models, who work hard and give their best effort, students who are all too often not recognized for their accomplishments, or students who demonstrate unusual commitment to academics despite various obstacles. The award ceremony will be organized and hosted by Coaches 4 Character and Greenville county school counselors. Anyone can nominate a student: faculty and staff, parents, community members, and students. The nomination form is available online.
Nominations open December 7, 2020 and close February 8, 2021.

Beginning with the 2021-22 school year Mauldin High School and all GCS high schools will be transitioning to a block schedule. This change will not impact the courses we offer or your child’s opportunity to take non-core courses of interest to him or her. In a block schedule, students take four courses at a time, with each course lasting a semester instead of a full year. Class periods will increase from 50 minutes to 90 minutes long. There are pros and cons to every type of schedule, but block allows more time for hands-on engaging projects and requires the students to focus on just four subjects at a time. Additionally, there is an opportunity for schools to share resources, teachers will have a smaller student load each semester, and, with the opportunity to earn eight credits each year instead of seven, there is more room in student schedules to take advantage of electives, Career Center Courses, Fine Arts Center offerings, dual credit classes and other experiences that support Graduation Plus.
Numerous tutoring and extra help opportunities are now available to MHS students! Visit our tutoring website to learn about these opportunities and choose which session works best for your schedule.
