As School Support Officer, Christopher Tolliver oversees nine schools and their administrators and ensures accountability for academic expectations. He works with school leaders to design and implement short- and long-term goals for school improvement and overall performance. Tolliver joined GCS as a teacher in 2005.
Tolliver served as principal for Eastern Guilford Middle School from 2014 to 2017. During his time at Eastern Guilford Middle, Tolliver led the school to increases in all state End of Grade and End of Course tested areas, an increase in the school letter grade from a D to a C, exceeded expected growth as a school based on the NC EVAAS measure, and brought the school off the state-identified low-performing list.
Prior to his appointment as principal, Tolliver served as an assistant principal at James B. Dudley High School and a teacher at Johnson Street Global Studies, where he was recognized as the Teacher of the Year in 2008.
Tolliver received his undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at Concord University in Athens, West Virginia, and a master's degree in School Leadership from High Point University. He has a son and a daughter, who both attend GCS schools.
