District 9 News
Charleston County School District (CCSD) honored four first-year teachers Thursday, August 26, 2021, by surprising them with Rookie Teacher of the Year awards.
Brett Jones, an eighth-grader on St. John's High School's track and field team, won two individual state titles at the South Carolina High School A state meet on Saturday at Lower Richland High School.
St. John’s High School science teacher, Lakevia Mills, is Charleston County School District’s 2020 Teacher of the Year (TOY). She’s honored to have been chosen and hopes to use the opportunity as Teacher of the Year to express the importance of creating equitable learning environments across the entire district.
Students who live in rural parts of Charleston County often don’t have the same opportunities as students who live in the suburbs. For example, dance studios are not plentiful on John’s Island. Programs that do exist in adjacent communities are often financially out of reach for families and inconvenient to access.
