Shantay Evans, a native of South Carolina, received her education and training from the University of South Carolina and South Carolina State University. Some of her prior work experiences involved facilitating the behaviors of able-bodied as well as individuals with disabilities on the local and state levels in various settings. Most recently, she served a SC school district for four years as the PBIS District Coordinator with responsibilities that involved training and coaching school teams and classroom teachers, conducting walk-throughs as well as providing technical assistance. She was also responsible for providing district professional learning opportunities such as educator resilience, classroom management and de-escalation.
As part of the new department of Positive School Culture Support she looks forward to supporting the behavior of all students throughout the district. Mrs. Evans lives with her husband and thirteen year-old daughter, Laila.
The Department of Positive School Culture Support assists CCSD schools with assessing and addressing school climate and culture. By conducting onsite school visits, analyzing multiple sources of data, and meeting with building leadership teams and school staff, we can suggest appropriate evidence-based methods to create effective school-wide, classroom, targeted group, and individual systems. Effective implementation of these systems create positive learning environments that support improved academic, behavioral, and social outcomes for all students.
We believe ALL students should feel safe and valued at school and should have continuous access to positive learning environments.
