Ms. Clarice Williams
I am a fourth grade teacher at Cooper Academy. This is my third year at Cooper Academy. I have been a teacher for Johnston County Public schools for 6 years and teaching since 2001. Most of my career, I have taught 4th grade and I am excited to be back. I am a mother of three beautiful children and is orginally from Hartford, Connecticut. I am currently the math and science teacher. My team teacher, ELA and Social studies, is Mr. Burbank. In our classroom we believe in hard work, purposeful practice, learning from our mistakes, and showing respect to others. I love learning, hopefully you do too!

We are sharing information with our families about the Targeted Support & Improvement State Level guidance for schools who have underperformed on state-wide assessments during the past few years. Of course, last year we did not have End-of-Grade testing in North Carolina due to COVID-19 school closures.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
