CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - As school leaders sit down on a regular basis to figure out how to keep students learning in the most effective way during the pandemic, teachers in the Charleston County School District are sharing their thoughts.

This survey of more than 700 Charleston County School District teachers was conducted by the Charleston Teacher Alliance. Jody Stallings is the director of the organization, and says they shared the results with the school board and CCSD administrators before releasing it to the public.

“The purpose of the survey is to work together to address various areas to make it safer for students and teachers. We wanted to get formal information from teachers to understand where they stand and then use that information to help everyone,” Stallings said.

Principals get high marks for trying to meet the needs of their teachers, but there is a lot of frustration as educators continue to navigate the world of learning while working within the restrictions brought on by the pandemic. The full survey is included below.
