For families wishing to speak with a different teacher besides their student's Advisory teacher, we encourage you to reach out to them directly. We look forward to our opportunity of continued collaboration.
Final School Day Announced
Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress
Last Friday our district communicated information about this year's Iowa Assessment of Student Progress or ISASP. I've provided a link to this communication below. At least 95% of our students need to be tested AT FRANKLIN regardless of learning environment. Students will not have the ability to test at home. The window for testing is April 19-May 14.
Remote & CRVA Learners
We will work with Remote & CRVA families to schedule the logistics regarding transportation and lunches. The plan for Remote & CRVA families is to test Monday and Tuesday of their respective week from 9:50AM-1:30PM. You'll see the scheduled dates below.
- 6th Grade: April 19-20
- 7th Grade: April 26-27
- 8th Grade: May 3-4
Remote and CRVA students will use a different entrance to the building and will test in separate locations with staff supervision. In the coming weeks we'll provide additional information and details.
Conditions for Learning Survey
Follow the link to the letter below with additional information about the Conditions for Learning Survey.
High Reliability Schools Survey
In the coming weeks we'll ask students, staff, and families to complete stakeholder-specific surveys. Over the past few years we've been fortunate to have a great turnout of family responses. We'll be sending specific communication out regarding these surveys. Be sure to look for these emails with additional details and a link for your as family members to complete a brief survey offering our building feedback on how to continuously improve.
Reporting Absences & Illness
If students are ill during the school day they should report to our Clinic to be seen by our Nurse or Health Secretary. We've seen an increase with students calling/texting parents from their cell phones rather than going to the clinic. Please help encourage your students, if they contact, to report to the Clinic where they can be assessed and parents contacted if needed.
