Welcome to the Franklin County School System
The Franklin County School District would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of support during this time of devastation in two of our communities. We have lost school facilities and offices but none compares to the loss of students, faculty, parents and other members of our community. Please continue to remember those families that have lost relatives and homes.
Located in beautiful Northwest Alabama, we invite you to visit the schools and communities of Franklin County.
The Franklin County School System subscribes to the belief that the primary function of the public schools is to promote the understanding, maintenance and improvement of the American way of life. To that end, the curriculum in the Franklin County Schools shall promote the development of democratic values and shall be based on a program of instruction in academic, technical subjects, fine arts, vocational/technical skills, citizenship, cultural development and enhancement of moral and spiritual values.
The responsibility for providing a free, appropriate education for all children and youth in Franklin County is placed on the Franklin County Board of Education by the Alabama Legislature. In fulfilling this responsibility, the board will:
Plan for program variety to allow for individual differences in mental abilities, physical stamina, learning styles and other factors, which determine progress in the school program.
Plan for educational opportunity for each individual who is eligible for enrollment in the school system.
Employ competent personnel and counseling procedures during placement of individuals, which include conferences among pupils, parents and teachers.
Support athletics and all school activities as an integral part of the local school program but to be supportive to the basic academic program.
Insist on reasonable standards of behavior and application so that pupils' right to learn is protected and no pupil is permitted to infringe in any way on the right of his/her classmates to learn.
