Mrs. LeAnne Singleton
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. This is my 2nd year teaching 7th grade ELA at Cleveland Middle School. Prior to coming to the Cleveland area, my family and I lived in Tokyo, Japan for 6 years. While in Tokyo, I taught at The International School of the Sacred Heart for 3 years after teaching English as a second language for Groover Language school for 3 years. I moved around as a child spending time in Florida, Alabama, North Carolina, and finally, Georgia where I graduated from The University of North Georgia with a Master's of Education. I began my teaching career in Gainesville, Georgia teaching 7th grade before moving to Florida with my husband. While in Florida, I took a break from teaching to raise my two wonderful children. I stepped back into the teaching field once my youngest began Kindergarten and have been teaching since. This year I will have a senior at Cleveland High School and an 8th grader here at Cleveland Middle. In addition to my children, my family also has the privilege of owning a beautiful pug named Ruby. I look forward to teaching your children this year. Please reach out with any questions at any time.
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.
