Welcome to the Newsroom

  • Crystal Roberts Johnston County Public Schools--the largest employer and business in Johnston County-- is a newsmaker. From teaching and learning to building and maintaining the brick-and-mortar where it all happens, and everything in between, public education is a headliner across the globe. We welcome and embrace the attention we garner, and we want to ensure that you have access to the complete and official story with details and a contact person to call should you need more information. Due to space and time constraints, outlets that print and/or post breaking news may not provide the rest of the story. We are obligated to ensure that you get it. We're proud of the role that public education plays in building the dreams of our young people. Please bookmark this page for the rest of the story.
