Message from the Superintendent

  • I count it a great honor and privilege to serve as Superintendent of the Franklin County Schools.  In the Franklin County School District, we take pride in our students and employees and the success of our schools. Our district is committed to bringing out the best in each and every child, while recognizing that strong schools are the foundation of strong communities. I believe in the extraordinary potential of all of our more than 3,500 students, and I am committed to meeting their individual educational needs. Our work together requires teamwork, dedication, and collaboration.  That collaboration extends beyond our school district staff and students: reaching throughout entire communities.  I am dedicated to working with all members of our schools and communities as we continue to make strides in the education of our young people.
