The Special Education Department at Franklin offers a continuum of services and a range of classes to support the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) in core academic classes as well as to support general education classes. Franklin offers the full spectrum of Special Education services from self-contained classrooms to full inclusion in general education.
Students’ schedules are arranged with their School Counselors and in conjunction with the students’ IEP Case Managers.
Students in Special Education may earn a standard diploma, modified diploma or certificate of completion. This decision must be made by the end of the sophomore year. A student will be placed on a modified diploma track or certificate only if the IEP team and school administration agree and parental consent is given.
