Magnet Lottery Enrollment

The lottery application window is now open and closes on January 31st.

You can access the lottery application on the DPS website by clicking on the DPS Magnet icon (blue apple). You can also access it by clicking here. If you have any questions about the lottery process you may contact Farrah Boggan or Jennifer Hauser. Farrah.Boggan@dpsnc.net or Jennifer.Hauser@ dpsnc.net

Kindergarten Enrollment

Kindergarten enrollment for Easley base students will begin February 3rd. If you have any questions regarding kindergarten enrollment, please contact our data manager, Elizabeth Varner, at Elizabeth.Varner@dpsnc.net.

Parent Climate Survey

We only have 56 responses on the Parent Climate Survey. Your input is very important to us. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey.

For the past two years our School Improvement Team has put out a Parent Climate Survey. We use the data from this survey to write our School Improvement Plan and to improve our school climate and culture. We appreciate your anonymous, honest feedback and thoughtful comments. The SIT is a group of elected individuals consisting of parents, teachers, and administrators. The team is responsible for creating and monitoring the school's mission, vision, and school improvement goals. Please take a a few minutes to complete this survey so we can better serve our Easley families.
