Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kristie Strickland
I am a 1988 graduate of Smithfield-Selma High School. I went on to attend Appalachian State University and graduated in 1992 with my degree in Education. I continued my education at Fayetteville State University and graduated in 1998 with a Masters in Special Education. In 2007 I passed my National Boards in EC and then renewed them in 2017. I came back to teach at SSS in 1997 and have been here since. I specialize in the EC Department where we collaborate with stakeholders, parents, and our students on what is the best way for ensuring all students are successful not only in the classroom setting but also when they leave SSS to start a life of their own.
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.
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.
