OUR MISSION AND VISION
MAXIMIZE STUDENT POTENTIAL. A seemingly simple mission statement that carries a lot of responsibility!
Our vision is to create a partnership between the community, educators and students to provide innovative educational opportunities. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, our desire is to maximize each and every Franklin Public School student's potential by funding and supporting our educators' and staffs' innovative ideas and technologies that reach beyond the financial means of the district. From projects like cutting edge laser technologies for tech classes to an outdoor mobile environmental classroom, we work hard to raise funds and develop reationships with the community businesses and leaders to invest in one our most treasured resources...our students' futures.
Since 1996, the Franklin Educational Foundation has granted more than $1.2 million to benefit students in Franklin's five elementary schools, middle school and high school.
