The Johnston County Board of Education voted to return Pre-K - 5th grade to Plan A, four days per week, beginning on Monday, March. 1. These students will participate in face-to-face instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, with Wednesday serving as an asynchronous learning day, to allow for deep cleaning of the schools.
With the return of face to face instruction, we are excited to start back our Before School Care and After School Care/My Kids Club programs.
As your child begins third grade, you will see a concentrated focus in ensuring students can read at or above grade level and is making progress in reading proficiency, so they can read, comprehend, integrate, and apply complex texts needed for secondary education and career success. As part of the Read to Achieve law (G.S. §115C-83.1) passed by the General Assembly in 2012, your child will take the Beginning-of-Grade 3 (BOG3) Reading Test to establish a baseline measure of beginning third-grade reading skills. This test will be administered within the first 20 days of face to face instruction, October 26 - November 23, 2020
Each grade level will have their own designated time to hear from their child's teachers, learn about parent expectations to help with virtual learning and ask any questions you may have. This is a great opportunity to chat with your child's teacher in a virtual setting!
