Charleston County School District (CCSD) has been awarded an Education Innovation & Research (EIR) grant from the U.S. Department of Education. It is a five-year grant worth $12 million.

CCSD’s grant project will focus on teacher choice in cultural competency training. Teachers will receive an allowance to choose their own professional learning. After attending training, teachers will provide feedback so the district can collectively build a resource bank of cultural competency training.
