Franklin Public Schools is dedicated to identifying, locating, and evaluating students with suspected special education needs from the ages of 3-21. Eligible students with disabilities will be provided with a free and appropriate public education consistent with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Parents, school staff, or community members may make a referral for consideration of special education needs by contacting Julie Preman, Director of Pupil Services or the building principal of your neighborhood school.
Each year, Franklin Public Schools, in collaboration with the Franklin Health Department, holds a screening for all three year old children who reside in the district boundaries. Known as Child Development Days, the program combines a play-based observational screening of children with a "Child Fair" for parents to learn more about child and family related services in the area. This year, families will have three opportunities to sign up for a screening. Please see the flyer and link to a brochure below for more information.
