Competency Based Education

Charleston School District, like many other districts across the country, are transitioning away from “seat time” or traditional time-based education. Competency Based Learning will provide opportunities and increased flexibility for our students. Allowing students to progress as they demonstrate mastery of both academic content and personal skills will mean our students will be prepared for success in life after high school. Being part of the Competency Based High School Pilot Program will provide Charleston High School students with flexibility in the way credit can be earned.  

Charleston teachers are currently learning more about Competency Based Education, by participating in book study, visiting schools, and working together to develop plans for each school. Next year, 23 teachers from Grades K-12 will participate in a Competency Based Education pilot program. These teachers will begin implementing personalized learning into their instructional practices. They will provide leadership and guidance for the rest of the district in the coming years, as we implement Competency Based Education.
