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 Christine Cody, Director of Student Services or the building principal of your neighborhood school.
Each year Franklin Public Schools 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 below for more information.
