Mr. Cornelius O Thomas
Welcome. My name is Cornelius Thomas. I come to you by way of Queens, NY. I attended Springfield College in Massacchussetts and earned my Bachelors in Sports Management and Minor in Economics. Next, I attended Quinnipiac University in Connecticut and earned my Masters in Business Administration.
I have taught Business and Information Technology and Marketing for 13 years. I have also coached HS basketball and scouted and conducted analytics research on MLB players for 13+ years. I have been blessed to network with over 100+ professionals in the business, education, and sports world. I am here to serve SSS and connect our students to people and opportunities that will allow them to be the best citizens they can be.
Visit our SSS CDC Website for more information about what we do to help our students.
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.
