    Dear Franklin community,

    I am pleased to announce that Chris Frazier will take over as Franklin High School’s new principal this fall after serving as the school’s vice principal since 2014.

    Among his duties, Chris collaborates with the school’s administrative team and works with students on academic and student management plans, assists the hiring and evaluation of teachers, and oversees Franklin’s athletic department. He also directs the planning, structure and implementation of a number of teams and student support programs, including the Climate Team, Equity Team, AVID and the Gear Up grant.

    Chris came to us from De La Salle North Catholic High School, where he held several positions, including vice principal of academics, academic counselor, dean of students, principal of summer school, and teacher of economics and employment foundations.

    He holds a Master of Arts in Teaching from Concordia University, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Economics from Willamette University. In addition, Chris received a number of educational certificates and taken high-level professional development courses.

    Chris also was an assistant varsity football coach at Grant High School from 2005 to 2014.

    Born and raised in Portland, Chris attended Irvington Elementary and Fernwood Middle School before his family moved. He graduated from Hillsboro’s Glencoe High School.

    Please join me in congratulating Chris in his new role as Principal of Franklin High School.

    Highlights and Reminders for the Week:

    • Principal Meet and Greet: Frazier met with families at the PTA meet and greet this last week.  We welcomed some incoming parents which was exciting to see. Mr. Frazier gave some insights into his tenue thus far and hopes for moving ahead.
    • Prom-Tomorrow night expects to be a memory making event for our seniors.  The venue is new to us and the excitement is high.  Chaperones are always welcome.  This is one of my most favorite events to see our students in their finest and so happy at the completion of this big accomplishment.
    • AP Exams-All done and we are happy!!  Good job students! Franklin usually has the most tests taken in the city, so it is a big endeavor and a big accomplishment to complete. Gone are the cramming sessions. Yeah! But…. Seniors stay focused!
    • Schedule for next year: We are close to running the master schedule which means we are on schedule to have students leave with courses in hand for next year.
