The Johnston County Board of Education held a special session on Wednesday, Sept. 14, to celebrate the academic successes released by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction earlier this month.
Johnston County Public Schools has a district wide goal of 100% of the schools in the system receiving a school letter grade of an A, B, or C by the end of the 2023-2024 school year, which has been heavily supported by JCPS Superintendent Dr. Eric C. Bracy and his senior leadership.
JCPS had 38 schools with a school letter grade of an A, B, or C before this school year, as well as 30 schools ranking in the top 20% in academic growth in the state.
“The level of achievement that we have seen throughout the district has been amazing. This is just the beginning.” said Dr. Bracy. “Our goal is to be celebrating again next September.”
Schools were given a banner to be hung in their schools to remind them of their achievement and to continue to strive for excellence.
Swift Creek Middle School Principal Dr. Kerri Evans said, “Having all building level administrators together to be recognized and celebrated for the hard work put in by students, teachers, and all school staff was humbling. The Swift Creek Middle School team worked together, whatever their role or title, to focus on student success.”
Principals, assistant principals, board members, and dignitaries were in attendance for the special session.
