Franklin Public Schools Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee
The DEI Committee is proud to share our newly minted website outlining a clear focused commitment to an ongoing process of Listening, Learning, Acting and Reflecting as we move to ensure an anti-biased and socially just school community. This site and the work are fluid and will be updated and revised regularly.
This work began here in Franklin several years ago when, in 2017, FPS adopted strong core values with a promise to ensure a safe and inclusive school community for each and every child. Those core values inspired and informed Franklin's Portrait of a Graduate.
In January of this year, a dedicated team of nearly 60 students, faculty/staff, administrators, and school committee representatives came together as the DEI Committee to acknowledge the challenges we have ensuring equity and inclusion in our own school district. This broadly diverse group, spanning from PreK-12, worked openly and honestly over the past 6 months to identify and develop a shared vision of diversity, equity, and inclusion and action steps for the future.
We invite you to visit our website, to reflect on our vision and to join us in ensuring that FPS is able to keep our promise of a safe and inclusive school community for each and every child.
Thank you to our PCC's, the Franklin Education Foundation, and our Booster groups!
FPS would like to extend our thanks to the Parent Communication Councils, the Franklin Education Foundation, and the many Booster groups who support our school district! These volunteers organizations provide an enormous amount of financial support to the district through the dedication and many, many hours of effort on the part of our paent. In 2019, these groups provided hundreds of thousands of dollars towards programming, materials, and events across our district. We are incredibly grateful for this support and to the volunteers who make it possible!
Happy Summer to our FPS Families, Faculty, Staff and the entire Franklin Community!
We hope our FPS families have a wonderful, safe, and happy summer break! We will be pausing our newsletter in the summer months!
