Superintendent Kennedy challenges students to dream big dreams


Superintendent Don Kennedy is poised to build an ecosystem of support around Charleston’s children. In his estimation, Charleston County School District can only help all students realize their dreams by knowing what they are and creating support systems to ensure that they become a reality.

On Friday, March 3, 2023, Superintendent Kennedy invited elementary school principals and kindergarten teachers to help him capture the dreams of young learners and to share their dreams with him in an open letter [Spanish]. Beforehand, he sat down with ten kindergarten students and heard about their dreams. Watch their interaction via this Youtube video [Spanish].

The involvement of the entire Charleston community will be essential to ensure children have the ability to make their dreams come true. Superintendent Kennedy asks community members to share their dreams, too. 

What are your dreams for all students of CCSD?
