Johnston County Public Schools Needs your Support on November 6th
Johnston County continues to be one of the fastest growing counties in North Carolina. Currently, we are the second-fastest growing school system in the state. The number of new students who enroll in Johnston County schools grows by almost 700 each year. By 2020, all indicators suggest that our student population will increase from 37,000 to more than 40,000.
In areas including student performance, qualification of our teachers, and access to technology, Johnston County Public Schools performs well above the state average. I am proud of what our schools and our communities have accomplished. But to stay on course, we need the continued support of our citizens.
This November, the bond issue on the ballot will provide $61 million for Johnston County Public Schools and $15 million to Johnston Community College. Approval of this bond will provide the funds to build one school, security vestibules for all schools, as well as additional needed infrastructure support. To make this happen, we look to the people of Johnston County: people who share our mission to empower our students to enrich their world by facilitating learning through relationships and relevant, innovative experiences. So remember, on November 6th, “Check it Twice For the Future of Our Children.”
