    @FTCSC will be starting on time Friday 2/27. #bundleupbuttercup http://t.co/n2JS45YRLW

    Proud to say our students, staff, and families have been working extremely hard this year in preparation for a new, more rigorous ISTEP.

    @IndyGirl8977 yesterday's prediction was off, it was 10 degrees warmer than predicted

    @cps3indy the 'record cold' is for Feb 24th not the winter. We consider delays or closing at -10 air and -19 wind chill as a guide.

    Franklin Township Community Schools will open ON TIME Tues. Feb. 24.

The rebalancing timeline for communication to the subdivisions that will be changing schools (Lakeland Trails, Timberfield, Franklin Parke, and Franklin Trace) was presented to the Board of Education at its regular meeting on Monday, January 12.  This timeline is the roadmap as to when communication and school visitations will occur for those subdivision that are impacted by Step 2 of the rebalancing/redistricting plan. Step 2, already approved by the Board, will be for the 2015 - 16 school years.

Step 3 will be a large movement of students and will most likely impacted much of the school district.  The work and data collection for the the "big one" will begin in the spring of 2015.  This major move is slated for the 2016 - 17 school years. The school district will communicate information via the website, FaceBook, Twitter, local media, and school/district newsletters.

Click here to view the communication timeline for those that will be affected.

As Superintendent of Franklin Township Schools, I’m proud to say our students, staff, and families have been working extremely hard this year in preparation for a new, more rigorous ISTEP assessment. We have faced many uncontrollable challenges along the way, but I can say with great confidence that we have all taken intentional steps to ensure our kids are ready as they experience this new assessment. As you may have heard in the news, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) has made changes to reduce the length of testing for ISTEP 2015. Dr. Flora

Hello Kitley Parents! Do you know what the role of the school counselors are at Kitley? Kitley has two counselors, Ms. McCafferty and Miss Vicars. Ms. McCafferty works with grades K-2, and Miss Vicars works with students 3-5. There are several ways you can utilize your child's counselor at Kitley. Counselors help both students and their families! Here are some ideas to help you out! 1. Understand the expertise and responsibilities of your child’s school counselor. School counselors make a measurable impact in every student’s life, assisting with academic, career and personal/social development. Professional school counselors are trained in both educating and counseling, allowing them to function as a facilitator between parents, teachers and the student in matters concerning the student’s goals, abilities and any areas needing improvement. School counselors provide services not only to students in need, but to all students. 2. Discuss your child’s challenges and concerns with the school counselor. As a parent, you know your child best. However, the school counselor can help you better understand your child as a student. It’s important to encourage your child’s expression of needs, hopes and frustrations. School counselors are trained to help your children. 3. Learn about your child’s school and social connections from the school counselor. When you need information or assistance, your child’s school counselor can help you get in touch with the appropriate school officials; learn about school policies on behavior, attendance and dress; know the school calendar of important dates; and stay connected with the school in many other ways. The school counselor can also help you locate resources in the community when you need them. 4. Work with the school counselor to identify resources and find solutions to problems. If your child is having a problem at school, it is important to work with your child’s school counselor to find solutions. Discuss resources available within and outside of the school, and get information on how such programs can benefit your child. Your school counselor can be a valuable partner in your child’s education and preparation for life beyond school. By taking advantage of all the school counseling department has to offer, you can help your child start off on the right foot – and stay there – this school year.
