GCSD Community Input Meetings

icon: GCSD logoEvery five years, Greenville County Schools pursues a comprehensive revision of its Strategic Education Plan. The purpose of this plan is to ensure GCS meets the needs of our students and helps them develop the knowledge and skills necessary to contribute to society. We are focused on building a plan for 2024 through 2029 that is reflective of this community’s expectations for academic achievement and college- and career-readiness. There are multiple ways to provide input, and the first is a series of community input meetings. 

Parents, students, staff and the community are invited to attend the community input meetings. The in-person meetings begin promptly at 5:30 PM and will conclude by 7:00 PM at the following locations: 

A virtual community input meeting will be conducted by Zoom on April 18. It will begin promptly at 11:30 AM and will conclude by 1:00 PM. Attendees are asked to complete an Online Registration for the Virtual Input Meeting.

In addition to the in-person and Zoom meeting opportunities, input can be provided through surveys, which will be administered in the Fall of 2023.

Clear Bag Policy for Athletic Events

icon: MMS Clear BagGreenville County Schools has a strict Clear Bag Policy for athletic events. Spectators will be permitted to carry one large clear bag (a gallon size Ziplock style bag or a 12" x 6" x 12" clear bag, plus a small clutch purse 4.5" x 6.5").

GCS is continually reviewing safety and security. Utilizing a screening process that includes a clear bag policy will enhance safety inside athletic venues and speed the screening process along. The clear bag is easily and quickly searched and greatly reduces faulty bag searches. It also supports the Department of Homeland Security's "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign.

To change your address, phone numbers or emergency contacts:

Use your Backpack account to update your contact information. You’ll need to scan a copy of a recent utility bill* or Change of Address Form. Please notify the school directly as you must provide two proofs of residency.

If your child will be a bus rider, you’ll also need to indicate that in Backpack or complete the Transportation Form, which is available on the district website.

*All address changes must include a current bill dated within past 30 days from either Duke Energy, Laurens Electric, Piedmont Natural Gas, Spectrum, or Greenville Water System.
