STRATEGIC PLAN

The Charleston County School District (CCSD) is hosting six public listening sessions designed to collect input and feedback to create a new strategic plan for the district. The sessions will include round-table discussions from each of the following categories: teachers, principals, parents, students, civic/community leaders and business leaders.

The listening sessions are open to the public and will allow for general comments.

“This new strategic plan for the district and the timeline for implementing it will reflect the feedback received during these listening sessions,” said Superintendent Gerrita Postlewait.

“We are inviting key stakeholders from across the community to sit down and help influence the plan in order to have the most positive and lasting impact for our children.”

The listening sessions are the first examples of Superintendent Postlewait’s renewed commitment to increased transparency throughout the district.

All sessions will be held at the Charleston County School District administrative building (75 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC 29401).

**Five Teacher Listening Sessions have been added to be held every Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. through July 26, with the exception of  July 5.**


LISTENING MEETING FORMAT

The purpose of the listening session series is to give key stakeholders the opportunity to provide input in the creation of the strategic plan.

Each session will feature a panel of individuals invited by the District to engage in meaningful conversations and dialogue about the District's mission, vision, values, and goals. The first half of each session will include facilitated discussion between panelists and a moderator. During the second half, the floor will be open for comments by session attendees and the general public.

Teacher and principal roundtable participants were chosen by teacher advocacy organizations, including the Charleston Teachers Alliance (CTA) and CCSD Teacher Roundtable, a group comprised of district school teacher of the year recipients.

After the final listening session in the series, District administration will present to the Board a strategic plan, which will include feedback from the district’s teachers, principals, parents, and students, as well as area community and business leaders.
