Chris Staubes Brings a Positive Business Perspective to New School Board

December 2nd, 2014

Our corporate attorney, Chris Staubes, recently won a seat on the Charleston County School District Board, a job he says is a natural progression of the work he does for non-profits, including schools.

“With a half-billion-dollar annual budget, the School District will be well served having someone on the Board who can prepare and negotiate budgets, is familiar with employee issues and who knows his way around a large organization.”

As a fiscal conservative, Chris focused his attention on a number of objectives during the election, including opening up communication. “Communication has been an issue in the past, but we intend to open up the dialogue with the community. We are encouraging the District to do a better job of communicating ideas, and giving citizens an avenue to communicate their thoughts.”

Overcrowding is another concern Chris wants the Board to address. Charleston County schools serve 48,000 children and that number is growing by 1,500 a year. “Children are already in trailers at schools that just recently opened. There are children eating lunch as early as 10:30 am because there are so many students that they have to take shifts in the lunch room. That is a problem, and we want to address it.” With the passage of the one-cent sales tax, “there should be the funds necessary to help us get ahead of the ball and build the schools we need,” says Staubes.

Staubes will work to reduce class size to improve the student-teacher ratio and expand the District’s early childhood education offerings. Also on his agenda is a nationwide search for a new superintendent.

“We have some great additions to the board, and I look forward to moving the District in a positive direction,” he says.
