Title I Programs at Franklin
Franklin Classical Middle School receives Title I funding for activities, programs, and events. The purpose of the communication is to inform families about Franklin's Title I program updates and activities.
The Importance of Parental Involvement
“The evidence is consistent, positive, and convincing: families have a major influence on their child’s achievement in school and through life. When schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more”. -Henderson & Mapp, 2002.
Parental involvement is an integral part of the Title I program. Parents are encouraged to become partners in helping their children achieve and become actively involved in all aspects of the process of the Title I program, from the writing of the plan to its implementation and evaluation.
A strong connection between the home and school is a key element to student success. Opportunities for active parent participation include, but are not be limited to site and district parent groups, parent workshops, open house, parent workshops, parent conferences, parent communication through newsletters, School Messenger, and more.
Title I legislation requires schools to utilize a portion of their Title I funds to support parent involvement. Parents with any comments or suggestions regarding the school’s parent involvement activities can contact the principal, Mrs. Black via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

School Attendance at this Time of Year is of High Importance
With the holiday season here and families begin to plan for the Winter break, please remember that attendance in November, December, and again in January is just as important as it is at other times of the year.
Keep in mind that:
- Many teachers assign projects that are due before the winter break.
- Middle school students often have tests in every subject the week before they go on break.
- Your child will have to make up any missed work. Making up November and December work in January could be very difficult for students.
- Have your child in school every day until the break. Plan family visits, shopping, and errands after school
- Limit evening activities during the school week. Your child still needs to study.
- Postpone travel plans until the break actually begins
Thank you for supporting your child's academic success by ensuring their daily and on-time school attendance!
