Educating the Valley: Shenandoah County Public Schools

28 October 2019

We kicked off today’s show with a quick conversation with our own Afternoon Traffic Jam host, Lonnie Hill. We talked about an upcoming live broadcast he’ll be hosting at Auto Care Clinic on Saturday, November 2, 2019, his 5 o’clock Fun Fact on Facebook (and now a podcast!); and, got a quick update on Camping for Hunger happening the week of November 18-23, 2019.

After the break, we started our conversation with Dr. Mark Johnston, Superintendent of Shenandoah County Public Schools. This particular conversation kicked off a re-boot of our podcast series “Educating the Valley.” Join me for conversations with school superintendents from the surrounding six counties, with local teachers about their programs, with students about their projects, with athletes about their competitions from private schools, public schools and colleges. Some of those conversations will happen on The Valley Today, some will be podcast-only episodes, so make sure you’re subscribed!

Our conversation with Dr. Johnston included discussion about the school system in general, their accreditation process for 2018; teacher salaries and the budget process; as well as solar power coming to Triplett Tech.
