Charleston County School District (CCSD) Chief Financial Officer Glenn Stiegman was seen being escorted out of the CCSD office building on Bridge View Rd. in North Charleston several weeks ago. Since then there has been no word of what prompted his removal.

Steigman was hired in November 2015, despite the district knowing that he had received three Driving Under the Influence arrests in five years. Stiegman was not a certified public accountant. When asked what Steigman’s status was, the district would only say he was on indefinite leave. A Charleston County School Board member informed Lowcountry Source that there has been no communication from the district office about Stiegman’s status.

Note: After this report was published, Charleston County School District revealed that Stiegman has been on medical leave since May 30 and plans to retire at the end of this month.  Board member Kevin Hollinshead remarked, “Why did they (district staff) take so long to tell us (the school board) that (Stiegman) was out on medical leave?”  Lowcountry Source will investigate the circumstances under which Stiegman was escorted out of the district office building.
