Franklin County is growing. We can anecdotally recognize this by observing housing developments cropping up around the county, hearing stories of houses selling the day that they go on the market, etc. Data provided by the Franklin County Economic Development Council bears this out as well, with a projected annual growth rate of up to 2.5%.
As a PreK-12 public school system, every school-aged resident of Franklin County has a place in our district. Although charter schools limit the students who may enroll with a lottery process, we welcome each and every child and we work to meet the academic, behavioral, and social development needs of all students.
As a district, we also recognize that it is important that students learn from their mistakes, and implementation of restorative practices can be powerful in conjunction with standard disciplinary consequences. This can be as simple as having a student acknowledge their behavior and taking a positive action- for instance, apologizing for taking something that didn’t belong to them or for saying something hurtful to someone else.
The important work of educating the students of Franklin County continues each and every day. The past two years have been challenging for us all, and we have wanted nothing more than a shift to normalcy. Despite our best efforts, students have had a disrupted educational experience that has created gaps that we continue to work to fill. They have needs that extend beyond academics and our schools have worked to support those efforts as well.
