Welcome to Franklin Co. Middle School!

Home of the Cubs!!!





Dear Parents,

In case school is called off over the next few weeks, we are planning to use the same approach we did last year in making up days.  Teachers and students will have assignments to complete over any days we have to miss.  We will utilize this work to excuse all the student absences as well as allow the teachers to count it as a work day.

In order for this to be successful the work must be completed to the best of every student’s ability to do so.  The decision as to whether the work is acceptable belongs to the principal and teachers.  Your student should know what to do and the standard it must meet just as any other homework they have been assigned.

Literacy is our focus this year and independent work is an ideal way for students to put their new literacy skills into practice so you can expect reading and/or writing to be part of any assignment they may bring home.

If school is out for the weather, please stay home, stay safe, stay warm, and keep on learning!

The Georgia Department of Education recognized Franklin County Middle School for implementing PBIS with fidelity for the 2014-2015 school year.

Franklin County elementary schools are implementing PBIS during the 2015-2016 school year.


**Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school’s sense of safety, and support improved academic outcomes. More than 22,000 U.S. schools are implementing PBIS and saving countless instructional hours otherwise lost to discipline. The premise of PBIS is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive student behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning.
