EOC Review Sessions
In an effort to help our students obtain the highest possible test score in the EOCEP courses, we are offering free After School Review Sessions to be held beginning March 28 through May 18 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:50pm–4:50pm before the tests begin May 9. If your child is in an EOCEP course, they will benefit from a review, regardless of their current course grade. Students are encouraged to attend the review sessions every week as the review topics will change weekly. See the Information Letter for complete details and schedule. Bus transportation will not be provided for students this spring. Students must be picked up at school by 4:50 pm immediately following the Review Sessions.

2017-18 Registration for Career Centers
The 2017-2018 application to attend the career center is now available on the BACKPACK portal for students who wish to apply for enrollment. Greenville County School District students must use their district username and password to access their BACKPACK account. Students will need to go in and click on “Programs" once they are logged into Backpack. The application deadline for Donaldson Career Center is March 31, 2017. To learn more about the Donaldson Center Course Offerings, please go to https://www.greenville.k12.sc.us/donaldsn/.
Grades, discipline, and attendance will be reviewed for each applicant. Acceptance is not based on first come, first served. However, in the event that a course has more applicants than available seats, the date the student completed the application could be used as a tie breaker. Homeschool, private school, and out-of-district students will need to "sign up for an account" and follow the prompts to apply. Click HERE to access the application. In-district students may link a personal email account and/or mobile phone number for text messaging by clicking the "gear" near the top right of the Backpack portal, and then click on the corresponding tabs.
College Visit Procedures
According to the student handbook (page 9), college visit requests for juniors and seniors must be submitted in writing to their grade-level counselor by a parent or guardian at least one week in advance of the scheduled visit. The last day for college visits is May 6, 2017. Once they return, students must bring written verification from the college visited. Approval will be granted for no more than three (3) visits per school year. Each request should specify duration of the visit and travel time, which may be approved at the discretion of the principal. Please note, the paperwork should be picked up in guidance. Teachers are to sign off on and the form must be turned in to attendance in advance. Underclassmen (9th and 10th grades) are not granted college visits. After the proper paperwork is turned in on return from the visit, the absence will be keyed into the student’s attendance as “CV” which represents college visit.
Volunteers Make Our School Great!
Mr. Imperati extends his warmest thanks to all those who volunteer at our fine school. We cannot do our work without you. With the start of a new school year, we want to remind parents and other volunteers of the guidelines for visitors that are in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Complete details can be found on our Volunteer page.
