• About the Elementary Learning Community

    The Elementary Learning Community (ELC) is organized and staffed with an Executive Director and two Directors. There are 48 elementary schools in the system including traditional neighborhood schools, Montessori programs, Arts Integrated themes, as well as a variety of grade configurations. 

    In Charleston County School District the elementary program is designed to ensure quality schooling with a rigorous, relevant curriculum for all students. The Elementary program establishes the foundation for all future learning. We aim to provide the basic skills as well as enrichment opportunities to develop students who are prepared to be college and career ready.

    The leaders, teachers and support staff in the Elementary Learning Community are enthusiastic about continuous improvement and finding opportunities to get better each and every day. We pride ourselves on keeping students at the heart of our work!
