Welcome to the FSSD!
The FSSD is a K-8 school system with approximately 3,850 students enrolled. Students are served by seven schools: four elementary schools, one intermediate school, one middle school, and a K-8 school.

The FSSD Board of Education has proudly committed itself to meeting and/or exceeding the state's teacher-pupil ratio requirements, with ratios at: 1 to 20 in kindergarten through third grade, 1 to 22 in fourth grade, and 1 to 25 in grades 5-8.

All schools and the Central Office are accredited by the AdvancED, one of the largest and most esteemed school accreditation agencies in the country. The AdvancED Review Team wrote in its 2013 report that the FSSD "shows its commitment to children in academic accountability by providing the best trained educators that can be found. These teachers and administrators carefully examine the learning needs of each student, collaborate, and develop specific learning goals that are monitored and adjusted as needed."

The Franklin Special School District gets its unique name from a Special Act of the state legislature that provides the Board of Education its own taxing authority, enabling the schools to be funded appropriately in order to maintain "Excellence in Teaching and Learning for All."
