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.

Franklin Central High School Student Council Representatives participated in the National Youth "Speak Out" Summit sponsored by the National Council on Educating Black Children on January 21st at Pike High School. The event was broadcast by WISH-TV, hosted by Lori Wilson, and streamed live nationally. Such topics as the role of social media, anti-bullying, and decreasing crime in our communities were deliberated upon as the youth had a chance for their voice to be heard. "Speak Out" dynamic participants included Juniors Janay Adkins, Ashley Curry, Jaspreet Dhillon, Bryce Espiritu, and Devin Raters. Student Council would like to thank Dr. Larry Young of Pike High School for coordinating the event and Principal Kevin Koers for inviting us to represent FCHS. We are very proud of our youth!
