The Board of Education Welcomes You!
The Johnston County Board of Education is committed to making Johnston County Schools second to none. Enhancing opportunities for schools and classrooms will be our first priority. As policy makers, this board shall be responsible for providing a sound, basic, quality education for all Johnston County Schools students by promoting rigor and creative academic performance for the improvement of student learning in a safe and orderly environment. The Board, as community leaders, shall provide open dialogue with mutual respect, working with the Superintendent and local government, securing sufficient resources and serving as advocates for the Johnston County Schools. We invite you to attend our meetings and we welcome your support and input.
Even during tough economic times, jobs have been preserved, instructional materials are still provided, schools are safe to attend, student achievement results continue to rise, and two new high schools opened in August, 2010. Click here for more on accomplishments.
Transparency has been a goal of this board of education as a means of building understanding and accountability within the community. It is being accomplished through the use of the district website and the free television cable channel. Examples include monthly postings of board of education meeting videos with minutes and agendas available, hosting radio broadcasts and podcasts featuring district leadership discussing programs and issues, highlighting upcoming events to increase public participation, and recognizing student and employee accomplishments. To increase public involvement in setting attendance boundaries for the two new high schools, proposed maps were posted on the website and community feedback was used to determine the final boundary lines.
