We have a full week of school this week. Progress reports will be sent out to families. Please check in with your scholar on their progress. Semester 2 ends in January. High school teachers will be reviewing expectations for semester finals and final projects with scholars. Please continue to reach out to your scholar's teachers if you have any questions or concerns about course work.
Thanks for all you do to help make CCSMS a great school.

Who to reach out to
Here are some tips for who it reach out to with questions, ideas, or concerns:
If you need an individual meeting with your scholar's teacher please reach out to them directly via email to set up a meeting time or a phone call. Teachers should respond within 24 hours during the work week. We do not expect them to respond in the evening or on the weekends. Their email should be in the course syllabus sent home last week.
If you have questions about logging into PowerSchool, bus transportation, or other front office related matters, please email the front office and someone will respond to you.
If you have general questions about middle school, Mrs. Carter is the Assistant Principal for middle school at CCSMS, and is always happy to help guide you and answer questions.
If you have general questions about high school, Mrs. Clark is our Interim Assistant Principal for high school this year while Mr. Thompson is away serving our country in the National Guard.
Our school counselors are Mrs. Domin for high school and Ms. Nguyen for middle school. They can help with course selection, adjusting to middle school or high school, and other resources your scholar may need to be successful.
If you have questions about your scholar's IEP or 504 plan, Mrs. Cannon can assist you.
If you have a question about a school behavior expectation or referral, the teacher or person who made the referal should reach out to you first, but if you have additional questions, you can reach out to Mr. Orr. He is our Director of Scholar Safety and Security and can also answer questions about campus security.
Mrs. Frasier, our lead principal, can assist you if an issue is not resolved at the teacher or administrative team level. She handles all of our day to day operations.
Mrs. Carmichael, our Executive Principal, can assist you if you have an issue you need to discuss that impacts the overall functioning of the school.
If you have an appeal of an administrator decision, there is a formal process to bring that issue to the board. You can reach the board members to start that process.
The mission of the Charleston Charter School for Math and Science is to educate scholars for success in college and careers by providing an innovative learning environment that is academically excellent, developmentally responsive, and socially equitable.
