Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) Meetings

An Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) is required each year for all students in the state of South Carolina beginning with grade 8.  This is not to be confused with pre-registration for high school.  This meeting is to review career assessments, graduation requirements for high school for the state of South Carolina, High school credit class progress, college scholarship information, and other very pertinent information for you and your child.  Our 8th grade students will attend this meeting with a school counselor and parents will join by phone.  Letters were sent home with progress reports.   Virtual students/parents will have IGP meetings through a google meet and during virtual student breaks/lunch times.    Letters were emailed to Virtual students.

Parent Backpack

parent backpack logoParent Backpack is an online application that has replaced the PowerSchool Parent Portal.  With Parent Backpack, you are able to view your child's grades, school attendance, lunch balance and class schedules when you are logged into the system. Parent Backpack works on any device and is mobile friendly.   Parents are reminded that once they have created their online Parent Backpack account, they must link their students using their Student ID (found on their progress report, report card, or class schedule).  After this process is complete, parents must then visit their child’s school and present their government issued photo ID in order for the school to approve their pending request.
Parents will find Parent Backpack on the GCS Portal Page GCS portal logo
