Digital Dragons logoOur Curriculum, Your Learning

The onset of COVID-19 has allowed school districts across the nation to try new methods of educational delivery to better meet the health and safety needs of students and staff who wish to learn at home or another location of their choice. We are pleased to offer the Digital Dragons, 100% online learning program for all ages of students and families who want to learn with JCSD curriculum and teacher support, but in a format and time of their choosing.

A 100% online learning program is new for us and likely, you, too. We are doing a lot of learning as we go and constantly striving to give all Johnston students the high quality, rigorous education they deserve, regardless of delivery model.

This section of our website will outline various materials, protocols, personnel, and resources students and families will find useful as they go about school in a virtual mode.
