Update for Middle School Athletics:
The North Carolina State Board of Education has changed their policy regarding interscholastic athletics. The new policy changes the grade level at which students may participate in Middle School Athletics. The change allows for 6th graders to participate in all athletics with the exception of Middle School Football. The policy does allow the local LEA to determine whether of not 6th graders may participate in Middle School Athletics. The Johnston County Board of Education discussed the policy change and decided that JCS will follow the North Carolina State Board of Education's recommendation. Rising JCS 6th graders interested in participating in middle school athletics will have to tryout for the team and will be expected to meet all standards and conditions that 7th and 8th grade students have met in the past.


Submit questions and/or inquiries to JCS Director of Athletics Kirk Denning. @JCS_Athletics

Athletic Handbooks-The North Carolina High School Athletic Association Handbook, the Johnston County Schools' High School Athletic Handbook, and the Johnston County Schools' Middle School Handbook contain the constitutions, rules and regulations, and general information concerning interscholastic athletics in the high schools and middle schools. It is vital that every school administrator and coach become familiar with the contents of these handbooks.

Any faculty member having a question concerning athletic rules, regulations, and conduct should contact their school athletic director or Johnston County Schools' Director of Athletics. At the middle school level, Scholar-Athlete Awards are presented during each sports season.
