Johnson County Schools has made the decision to start school with a 1/2 day on Friday, August 7th and the first full day on Monday, August 10th. This it to ensure our teachers are properly trained in the virtual curriculum that our students will be utilizing. Our goal is to be able to provide our students, both in-person and virtually, the tools needed to access the on-line curriculum. During the first few days of school, teachers will be asked to provide their in-person students with the information needed to do the on-line programs should we have to transition to virtual learning for students.
Teacher workdays will now be scheduled for Tuesday, August 4th and Wednesday, August 5th.
“I hope that we will be able to have school this year in-person because I truly believe that is what is best for our students. However, the safety of our students and staff are the most important thing during this time.” stated Director of Schools Dr. Mischelle Simcox.
