• What Is the TIPS Program?

    Recognizing that beginning educators often face tremendous challenges at the start of their careers, Charleston County School District (CCSD) and the Office of Teacher Effectiveness have implemented the Teacher Induction and Preparation Support (TIPS) program.

    By coupling TIPS with the ongoing support provided by school-based and learning community leadership, CCSD works to ensure that beginning educators will gain accelerated success and effectiveness, as well as greater self-confidence during the first year of their new career. 

    TIPS offer a heightened sense of job satisfaction and allow beginning educators the opportunity to build connections within their schools, their learning communities, and the district as a whole. Beginning educators find they will have an enhanced commitment to their students and the profession as they work with colleagues in their school and the district.
