A Message from Dr. Reavis

The South Carolina College-and Career-Ready Assessments (SC READY) are statewide assessments in English language arts (ELA), mathematics, and science. SC READY ELA and math are administered to students in grades 3-5, while science is administered to students in grades 4. Per SC law, students are required to participate in testing and the students’ scores will count in the schools’ and district’s accountability calculations.

Students can access the Online Testing Video Tutorials and the Online Tools Training (OTT) modules to become familiar with the online testing system. Although the OTT looks like a real test, there is no score, there is no time limit, and students may use it as many times as they want. The video tutorials and OTT are accessible on the DRC INSIGHT Homepage - click on the DRC INSIGHT Online Assessment Tutorial and the SC READY Online Tools Training icons on the lower part of the screen.

To learn more about the SC READY assessments, please visit the SC Department of Education’s website:

Community Input Surveys

Strategic Education Plan: Community Input Survey

Every five years, Greenville County Schools pursues a comprehensive revision of its Strategic Education Plan. The purpose of the strategic planning process is to ensure GCS meets the diverse needs of our students and helps them grow in both knowledge and skills. Our focus is on continuing a plan that reflects community expectations for student academic achievement and career - and college-readiness.

If you would like to provide input on the Strategic Education Plan, please complete the Parent/Guardian Input survey by June 2.

School Lunch

No Food From Outside Restaurants

We welcome your cafeteria visits and volunteering through Lunch Bunch each day!  It means a lot to the students to see you here. We do ask, however, that you avoid bringing in food from outside restaurants for yourself or for your children. If you plan to eat with your children, you may order a school lunch or of course can pack your lunch. Weekly menus are posted on our school website.

If you are ordering lunch from our kitchen, please call in your lunch order to Rena Huffman, Food Service Manager, at 355-7108 or email her at rhuffman@greenville.k12.sc.us. Orders are due by 8:00 am the day they are being served. Rena and our wonderful kitchen staff look forward to serving you! Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

2023-24 School Calendar

Student Calendars Released 2023-24 and 2024-25

Students will start the new school year on Tuesday, August 8, 2023. The last day of school will be Wednesday, May 22, 2024. The calendars reflect a shift to allow the fall academic semester to end prior to Winter Break. This adjustment will be academically beneficial to students, and the feedback received regarding this shift was extremely positive, with 74% of respondents in favor, as detailed below. Midterms, finals and state testing will be completed before students leave for winter break, rather than in January when they return to school after an extended break.
