Return to School Roadmap 2020

Greenville County Schools know that parents want to have in person classes in the Fall. To that end, the school district has devised a flexible plan to accommodate the spread of the virus and offer as safe a learning environment as possible.
Here’s the latest information regarding in-person school attendance for this fall from greenville.k12.sc.us/

In-Person Attendance Dependent on Virus Spread in the Community

The goal of the GCS administration is to return to in-person school five days a week, as soon as it is safe to do so. Under guidelines produced by the AccelerateED task force, schools should correlate attendance plans to Community Spread levels. In general, as community spread increases, the number of students present in school each day should decrease, down to and including zero. DHEC issues a new community spread rating each Monday, and as a result, we will not know our attendance plan for the start of school until much closer to August 17. Our Attendance Plan Roadmap provides four possible attendance scenarios for students:  0 days of in-person attendance (also known as eLearning), 1 day of in-person attendance (1/4 of students attend each day, Mon-Thurs), 2 days of in-person attendance (1/2 of students attend each day, Mon-Thurs), and our regular five-day schedule. We are only able to maintain social distance in schools under Attendance Plans 1 and 2.

This video explains what the in-person attendance schedule will look like this school year in Greenville County
