GC Virtual Program: 2021-2022

Greenfield-Central Community School Corporation recognizes that we must continue to offer innovative educational opportunities so that we can reach each student and support his or her social, emotional, and academic growth. In order to serve our students who have found success in the virtual environment, Greenfield-Central will offer a Virtual Programming option for all students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 (GCVirtual).

GCVirtual is meant to meet the needs of students and families who have shown that they can remain engaged in their academic journey in a fully-virtual environment. Students who have not been successful in the virtual environment will not be considered for admittance and will be invited to attend classes onsite throughout the school year.

In order to maintain clear expectations and communicate commitments between students, families, and Greenfield-Central Community School Corporation educators, the included guide offers explanations and guidance for families. Questions regarding GCVirtual should be directed to administrators (page 3) and/or counselors (page 8). A link to the GCVirtual application can be found on the first and last pages of the handbook.

We look forward to partnering with families who engage in GCVirtual.

Mask Mandate

As you may be aware, Governor Holcomb has given more local authority regarding mask mandates; however, please be aware that he also went on to say that face mask use would still be required in K-12 schools for the remainder of this school year.

Author of the Month

Congratulations to the students who were recognized by their teacher as a recent Author of the Month at Harris!

3rd Grade ILEARN Test

As required in the state of Indiana, students will take the ILEARN test to determine their proficiency on reading and math on Indiana Academic Standards. This year's test window beings on April 19th. Please avoid scheduling appointments in the mornings from April 20-April 29, as your child may be testing on one of those dates. Currently, we plan to test on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, March 31
  • Wednesday, April 7
  • Tuesday, April 20
  • Wednesday, April 21
  • Thursday, April 22
  • Friday, April 23
  • Tuesday, April 27
  • Wednesday, April 28
  • Thursday, April 29


Kindergarten students will take an assessment during class this week called CoGAT. This assessment helps us plan for student learning, and is one of the pathways for high ability instruction identification, as noted on the GC corporation Website. Your teacher should have shared a schedule with you.

Kindergarten 2021/2022

If you are aware of a child who will be attending any of our GC Schools in the fall, please share with them that enrollment for kindergarten is now open. The link for Kindergarten pre enrollment form can be found on our G-C CSC website. Please click below for more information about the great programs GC offers.


Thank you for continuing to be diligent in your efforts to keep your family and other Harris students healthy and safe. Please self screen at home and be sure that you don't send a sick child to school this year. In addition, if any member of your household has a pending COVID-19 test, you should not send your child to school until the results of that test return negative. Thanks for helping us slow the spread at this difficult time of year.
