Dear Franklin Parents,
Thank you all so much for your support with our California Distinguished School Validation Visit on Monday! It went extremely well! The team said that we have an amazing school, staff, and community! They were able to hold interviews with our stakeholder groups (students, teachers, PTA, and Site Governance). They toured all of our classrooms and they were able to validate our two signature practices that were highlighted in our application ( Intervention and Anti-Bullying). The team said that it was very evident that all groups interviewed spoke a common language regarding intervention and anti-bullying, were enthusiastic, and definitely knowledgeable about the school, our goals, and our mission, and vision.
We don’t have an “official” word yet, but “unofficially” I am pretty positive that we will be named a California Distinguished School 2014! I will officially announce it once we get their decision in writing.
Have a wonderful day!
