CHARLETON, S.C. (WCBD) – On Monday, members of the Charleston County School District (CCSD) School Board discussed how to use the remaining COVID-19 funds, focusing on mental health, technology, and teacher support initiatives.
According to the CCSD, there will be an emphasis on “ensuring sufficient support in school—social workers, behavior interventionists, and other key resources to create positive school environments for all students.”
Students and teachers can both benefit from stress-relieving sensory toys and rooms.
The expansion of broadband in rural areas was a top priority for the technology sector as well.
It would also help pay for early hiring packages for student teachers, more substitutes, and higher pay for teachers who work in multiple schools.
Money for the project has yet to be decided. In order to make the final decision on spending, the board plans to consult with teachers, principals, and parents first.
