Assignment Choice Lottery Results
Greenville County Schools has posted the results of the Change in Assignment Choice Lottery. Lottery results provide the order of selection for each student for each requested school. Parents can access their student’s information by using their choice form number. Students’ names are not listed. The lottery order, step three of the process, does not guarantee placement. Space by grade level will later determine school choice assignments. That information will be determined based on student projections for each school by grade. Student choice assignments will be determined and assignment letters sent to all parents no later than Monday, March 31, 2014. Learn more...
