The Charleston County School District has named its new Chief Academic Officer.  Dr. Lisa Herring will be responsible for advising and implementing measurable goals and strategies for schools. She will oversee district-wide initiatives and programs that focus on the vision 2016 goals.

Dr. Herring served as the  Race To Top District grant organizer and leader. RTT is a $19 million federal grant that was awarded to the district for the implementation of personalized learning environments.

"It is an honor to serve the students, parents, teachers and leaders of the Charleston County School District as the Chief Academic Officer. I am dedicated to executing the goals outlined in Vision 2016 and working strategically to move our district towards aggressively closing the achievement gap," Herring said

Dr. Herring is the mother of a Charleston County School of the Arts rising senior, who was the target  of a tweet that included the use of a racial slur. 

Imani Herring said a tweet by fellow student Ashley Patrick was a response to something she said in class with the teacher's permission. Patrick was suspended from school by the district for 5 days.
