Five Franklin Special School District schools have been awarded RTI2-B Model of Demonstration (MOD) schools, as announced January 20, 2022, by the Tennessee Tiered Supports Center (TSC) at Vanderbilt University.
The Board of Education voted on November 29 to rescind the mask requirement for students, staff, and visitors. Citing low positive cases in the school and the community, as well as the availability of the vaccine to ages 5 and older, the Board voted unanimously to lift the requirement. Anyone who chooses to wear a mask in the schools or offices is welcome to do so.
Prekindergarten through fourth-grade students at Franklin Elementary have joined communities across the nation in a collaborative art project that, so far, spans 16 states with the ultimate goal of being part of a painted garden of 10,000 flowers.

Families of 4th-8th graders should have found an envelope in your child’s backpack Friday, August 13, that includes your child’s Individual Student Reports from the TCAP tests they took last spring. This state report includes information about your child’s academic performance in all tested subjects.
The 2021 TCAP data reveals a great deal about the perseverance of our students and teachers, despite the many challenges that the global pandemic presented over the past two years. In a year of uncertainty, the Franklin Special School District maintained its long history of outperforming the state in every grade level and subject area. In fact, the district as a whole outperformed the proficiency percentage of the state by double digits in every subject area.
