Mr. Joseph Mott
This is my 4th year at Clayton High School and my 7th year teaching overall. My first three years of teaching were at Corinth Holders High School. I went to Laney High School in Wilmington, NC and then went to N.C. State University and completed both my undergraduate and graduate degrees there. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and my Master's of Arts in Teaching.
I am also the Varsity girls and JV boys soccer coach here at Clayton High School. This will be my 4th year coaching at Clayton and my 6th year coaching overall.
I currently reside in Clayton, NC and am happily married to my wife, Kim. My daughter, Emma, is a year and a half old and is the love of my life! We have two dogs (Mattie and Cooper) and a cat (Lucy). I love to spend my time with my family and doing new, fun and interesting things!
I am very excited for another great year at Clayton High School! Go Comets!

Clayton High School Announcements
North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
Our district is continuing to follow the guidance and recommendations from the Johnston County Public Health Department, the CDC, and the Strong Schools NC Toolkit, and we will now adhere to a 5 day quarantine period for students or staff members who tests positive for COVID-19. This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
Johnston County Public Schools is participating in the Test to Stay Program, a voluntary study with Duke University and the ABC Collaborative. Due to that participation our students now have more options if they are deemed a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case while at school.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
