ORANGEBURG—South Carolina Independent School Association Executive Director Larry Watt announced that members of the faculty at a local school completed the SCISA Teacher Institute.

Faith Christian School teachers David Ridley and Luke Koors completed the two-day training program.

“The goal of the SCISA Teacher Institute is to give teachers who are new to SCISA schools a thorough orientation and to ensure a working knowledge of the policies under which the teacher will be working,” Watt said. “It is also a great refresher course for veteran teachers,” he added.

Topics such as classroom discipline, classroom procedures, school politics, co-curricular activities, testing and grading, and communication with parents were presented and discussed. Case studies using the participants’ policy manual and handbook were studied, and all participants were video taped teaching a typical lesson.

“The Teacher Institute is just one of the many programs SCISA offers its member schools,” Watt said.

The South Carolina Independent School Association is a non-profit, voluntary association of over 110 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.
