Bigger spaces make a big difference. Berkeley County School District teachers and administrators are being challenged to incorporate dynamic spaces in their lessons, but it isn't anything new.
This edition of In the Loop, published and distributed by the Department of Communications and Community Engagement, provides a highlighted summary of actions taken by the Board of Education during the regular meeting on September 18.
The Special Talent Enrichment Program (STEP) serves Berkeley County School District students in grades four through twelve who have been identified through auditions as gifted in visual art, music, drama and dance.
Seven schools opened their doors as shelters, and BCSD employees, working alongside teams from the Red Cross, local law enforcement and other agencies, did their best to serve hundreds of men, women and children hoping for the best and fearing the worst.
The Berkeley County Board of Education meets the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. in the Boardroom located at 229 E. Main Street in Moncks Corner (except as noted on October 24 and March 13). Board meetings are open to the public and citizens are encouraged to attend. There is an opportunity for "Citizen Comments" at the start of each meeting.
What is Character Education?
Character Education is a national movement creating schools that foster ethical, responsible, and caring young people by modeling and teaching good character through an emphasis on universal traits that we all share. It provides long-term solutions that address moral, ethical, and academic issues that are of growing concern about our society and the safety of our schools.
