The Charleston County Board of Trustees recently evaluated Superintendent Gerrita Postlewait, giving her an overall score of 3.5 out of 4 to put her in the class of “highly effective.”
“The board rated the evaluation as a 3.5 overall,” CCSD Board of Trustees Chair Cindy Bohn Coats said. “We conclude that the results are an accurate portrayal of the past year.”
There were three areas in which Postlewait score 3.5 or better. These include “relationship with the board”, “community relations” and “instructional leadership.”
“It is most commendable that our Superintendent deferred a pay increase,” CCSD Board of Trustees Vice Chair Chris Staubes said. “She has led our district through a challenging year with many hurdles to overcome, all while maintaining focus on our highest priority- educating children and closing the achievement gap.”
In “staff relations,” “business and finance” and “district results” she received scores ranging from 3.0 to 3.49.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve children, educators, parents and community members in Charleston County and appreciate deeply the board’s vote of confidence,” Postlewait said. “We’re looking forward to working with newly elected board members as we continue to focus intently on student achievement and well-being.”
