Roshon R. Bradley, Ed.D. Appointed Interim Principal of Sanders Clyde Creative Arts Schools
Charleston, SC — Charleston County School District (CCSD) is proud to announce and welcome Dr. Roshon Bradley as Interim Principal of Sanders Clyde Creative Arts School, which serves students in grades K-8. Bradley comes to CCSD after serving as a principal in Rochester, NY for the past 10 years.
Bradley is an accomplished administrator and leader, who is skilled at fostering commitment with and between students, parents, and teachers. He is proficient in implementing measures and metrics essential to driving change in an urban school district, and is adept at mentoring, motivating, and inspiring students to achieve and overcome barriers to achievement.
Bradley began his career as a school counselor at Clinton Avenue Learning Center in Rochester, where he was hired to work with at-risk students in an urban environment. Two years later, Bradley was promoted to Assistant Principal at Lewis H. Morgan School, where he served for a year before taking the assistant principalship at Martin B. Anderson School for the next three years.
In 2007, Bradley became the principal of Kodak Park School, and later an early childhood school in the area, where he served until joining the District this year.
Bradley has expertise in the areas of instructional design and development, school-based budgeting and administration, organization building and strategic planning, behavior management through progressive intervention and discipline; grant writing, facilities management, and fundraising and community partnerships.
During his time in Rochester, Bradley successfully transitioned one of his schools from one with concerns over performance, to one which is in “good standing,” where classroom and academic performance were on par or exceeded state standards. He also co-captained a district-wide initiative to recruit teachers from around the country, which resulted in the hire of dozens of new teachers who relocated to Rochester. Furthermore, Bradley generated grants to fund the purchase of Smaartboards in classrooms, sound systems to improve sound quality, as well as iPads® to facilitate instruction. He was also instrumental in fostering community partnerships and alliances, often creating community business ambassadors for schools such as a financial services firm that could provide educational seminars for parents, or a local church that could help provide school supplies and clothing.
Bradley holds a Bachelor of Science in Sociology and a Master of Science in Counseling Education from the University of Buffalo. He also holds a Master of Science in Educational Administration and a Doctor of Education and Executive Leadership from St. John Fisher College.
Bradley is eager and enthusiastic for the opportunity to tackle a new challenge in elementary education, and looks forward to serving the students and families of Sanders-Clyde Creative Arts School.
