Mrs. Dolores J. Barrett
I am very much looking forward to what the 2021-2022 school year has in store for the Johnston County Public Schools system. I am very proud to be a member of the "SSS Spartan Family," ("Once a Spartan, Always a Spartan!"), as I begin my 23rd year of teaching at Smithfield-Selma High School.
I am a 1980 graduate of Youngstown State University, located in Youngstown, Ohio. I hold a Bachelor of Music in Education degree from the Dana School of Music, with my certification area being Music K-12. Upon my graduation from YSU, I taught Instrumental Music at Cardinal Mooney High School, also located in Youngstown. I am a very proud veteran, having served on active duty in both the United States Air Force and the United States Navy. While serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, I received training in the field of Electronics, and have had many opportunities to travel stateside, as well as overseas. I reentered the field of Education in 1999, during which time I began teaching Vocal Music at SSS. In addition to Vocal Music, I also teach Music Appreciation classes, and am an instructor for Distance Learning Lab courses. (These courses are listed as Study Hall on students' schedules.)
At their August meeting, the Johnston County Board of Education voted 4-3 to make face coverings required indoors in all Johnston County Public Schools campuses and on all buses for students, staff, and guests. This updated mask requirement is effective immediately.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
