Mrs. Diana Jones
Hi all! My name is Diana Jones. I grew up in Cary, NC. My husband Erik and I have been married since 2003, and have three children. I have been working in education for over 18 years! I started when I was in school at NC State. My husband was active duty Navy at the time, so after graduation I moved to Virginia. All of our family was here, so after he got out of the military, we moved back to North Carolina. We have lived in Willow Spring since 2006. I worked in a private school for over 10 years, before deciding to enter the school system. I joined the Johnston County School System at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year at Dixon Road, and I love it! In addition to teaching in enjoy CrossFit, spending time with my family, camping, and hiking.

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.
North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
Our district is continuing to follow the guidance and recommendations from the Johnston County Public Health Department, the CDC, and the Strong Schools NC Toolkit, and we will now adhere to a 5 day quarantine period for students or staff members who tests positive for COVID-19. This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
Johnston County Public Schools is participating in the Test to Stay Program, a voluntary study with Duke University and the ABC Collaborative. Due to that participation our students now have more options if they are deemed a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case while at school.
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.
