ORANGEBURG – A member of the management team at a local independent school completed a Secondary Managers’ Workshop sponsored by the South Carolina Independent School Association.
Laurence Manning Academy teacher Kelly Brown participated in the one-day event, according to Larry Watt, SCISA executive director.
Brown is the third-grade teacher and the school’s activities director.
“When someone transitions into any level of management or supervision, new skill sets are demanded,” Watt said. “Education is certainly not immune from this principle. This workshop was designed to meet the needs of new and experienced secondary managers including assistant principals, division heads, athletic directors and supervisors.”
The South Carolina Independent School Association is a non-profit, voluntary association of over 120 independent schools serving more than 37,000 teachers and students.
Founded in 1965, the State of South Carolina incorporated SCISA as an exclusively educational organization with the responsibilities of establishing accreditation standards, coordinating academic and athletic competition and providing professional development for member organizations.
