Charleston County School District Logo

Charleston County School District (CCSD) is located in Charleston, South Carolina, and serves approximately 46,000 students in 84 schools. The district’s new evaluation system for teachers includes classroom observations of educator practice using CCSD’s Classroom Observation Tool (COT), a student value-added growth measure, and SC’s mandated evaluation system, Assisting, Developing, and Evaluating Professional Teaching (ADEPT) to produce overall educator effectiveness ratings. The administrator evaluation model for principals and assistant principals in the TIF schools includes results of PADEPP (Program for Assisting, Developing, and Evaluating Principal Performance), schoolwide proficiency, schoolwide value- added, and parent and employee surveys. CCSD uses these educator effectiveness ratings to implement a performance- based compensation system (PBCS) and improve CCSD’s Teacher and Leader Professional Learning Cycle, including its hiring and professional development practices.
