    CCSD's Board of Trustees is comprised of nine single-member election districts that correspond with the composition of Charleston County Council election districts. Beginning with the November 2022 election, Board members from voting districts 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 shall serve terms of four years, while voting districts 2, 4, 6, and 8 shall serve terms of two years each. By November 2024, all seats will serve four-year terms.

    The CCSD Board of Trustees typically meets on the second and fourth Mondays of each month. Any exceptions to this meeting schedule will be posted publicly on the CCSD website.
