The Chesterfield County School District will take part in the Old English Consortium's Teacher Recruitment Fair at Winthrop on Nov. 28.
During the recent weather events, Chesterfield County School District was closed for seven days. While we know there are many differing opinions on making those days up and there are many factors to be considered, South Carolina has a well-defined statute regarding missed days and the rules for making those days up. The law prescribes the following: The first 3 days missed must be made up. The next 3 days the local Board of Trustees can either schedule for make-up or they may forgive any or all of the 3 days. Days 7 through 9 the local board may require the district to make up or they may pass a resolution appealing to the State Board of Education asking that the days be forgiven. There are no exceptions for natural disasters or states of emergency. The Chesterfield County School Board has voted to accept the recommendation of the administration on a make-up plan.

On October 22, Chesterfield County School District hosted its 2018 New Teacher Conference. More than 75 teachers who are in their first, second or third year of the teaching profession gathered for this inaugural event. New teachers spent the morning in sessions presented by district teachers and staff, which included former district teacher of the year winners, Tracy Hatcher, Emalee Bryant and Charles Redfearn. After lunch, our 2018-19 District Teacher of the Year, Natalie Melton, facilitated a new teacher panel, which provided new teachers the opportunity to ask questions to veteran teachers.
