Change in Assignment School Choice Lottery Window Opens November 16
Greenville County Schools’ Change in Assignment (CIA) School Choice Lottery Window will be available from Monday, November 16 through Wednesday, December 2, 2020 where parents can submit a choice form for up to three schools for their child at their number one choice school.
Choice forms are available at every school (except magnet schools) and must be completed and submitted at the number one choice school. Order of receipt of CIA form at schools during the CIA Lottery Window does not affect lottery ranking or assignment.
All parents/guardians interested in applying for a possible CIA school choice slot at a school other than their assigned school based on their resident address should apply during the Change in Assignment Choice Lottery Window. Parents of kindergarten students should apply during the CIA Lottery Window (do not wait until kindergarten registration).
A lottery will be conducted and results will be posted on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 on the GCS website providing the order by grade for each school. Names will not be listed. Parents will access results by using their CIA choice form number and it is suggested parents take a picture of the form to avoid misplacement of the CIA number. This listing will be the results of the lottery only. Space by grade level will later determine the choice assignments. Students selecting a school as a higher choice have priority over students selecting the school as a lower priority.
This process does not include GCS’s magnet schools. Please directly contact the magnet school of interest.
