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.
In the case of student Special Education and Section 504 Records, it is required by law that such requests are treated urgently. All requests by school districts for students identified for Special Education services or Section 504 Accommodations should be faxed to 414-529-8230 attention Student Services.
