Emergency Text Alerts
Due to changes in telecommunications laws Greenville County Schools (GCS) is now able to send emergency text messages to parents through the school messenger system if their listed home phone number is text capable. If you are a parent who would like to receive emergency texts and currently have a landline listed as your home number please fill out the form below and return school.
Please note that this text system is only to be used in emergency situations (including school closings) and not for regular school messages.
Parents should complete the attached form with a signature and return it to each child’s school to ensure they receive all emergency text messages.
ACE Award Nominations Now Open
The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) is an annual award given to 72 male and female students from each of the 35 Greenville County middle and high schools. This award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments. The selection process, established by Greenville County school counselors, focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but have accomplished great things in their community, church or school.
If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th grader, please or go online to coaches4character.com and click the nominate button at the top of the page. You can also complete a paper application, available in the School Counseling Office. All nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2019. An ACE Awards Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award. One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County. All ACE award recipients will be recognized at the ACE Awards ceremony on May 15, 2019.
School Report Card
Below is the link to our School Report Card, released November 29, 2018 by the State Department of Education. Based on a number of factors, each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory.
These report cards are very different from past report cards in our state. The new report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information.
