Welcome to the Franklin County Community School Corporation
We exist so children can excel.
October 8, 2013: Franklin County Community School Corporation’s Food Service Department is excited to provide you with a convenient and secure online payment service called mySchoolBucks. This website allows you to deposit money directly into your child’s school meal account and view balance/purchase information for the past ninety days. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find that the lunch lines move along much faster, which gives your child more time to eat and be with friends. Click on the “Food Service” link in the menu above to learn more and to register for the service.
Celebrations! Join us as we celebrate the many accomplishments of Franklin Community School Corporation’s students and teachers. Each month we will spotlight a new accomplishment in this space. To view past celebrations, click here.

Two students at Brookville Elementary earned a perfect score in Math on the ISTEP+ tests taken in the spring of 2013. Cole Rapp and Alajah Lohrey were congratulated by the Franklin County School Board of Trustees and Superintendent Debbie Howell by presenting them with plaques expressing their appreciation for their hard work. Cole and Alajah, now fifth grade students at BMS, were students in Laura Taylor’s fourth grade classroom. Dr. Howell commented that in investigating it was found that Cole and Alajah were the only Franklin County students to achieve that success during the 2013-14 school year.
Franklin County High School will be transitioning to the Google Chromebook for the 2013-2014 school year. Chromebooks were distributed to registered freshmen and sophomore students on the first day of school. For more information about this program please review the following links.
We believe it is the function of the Franklin County Community School Corporation to educate our students for a life that will be satisfying and meaningful to them as persons and will contribute to the improvement of their community, state, and nation. The educational system shall be student-centered, addressing their needs and potential so they may be more adequately prepared vocationally, socially, intellectually, and morally.
Recognizing the diversity of pupil needs and interests, the curriculum and activity programs shall be varied to meet individual desires so that student may acquire the skills necessary to make a living, find satisfactory leisure time activities, develop self-esteem, gain the respect of others, and develop the desire to contribute to our representative society. The programs shall be revised, as necessary, to assist the students to adjust to life in an ever-changing world, teaching them how to think and act in real-life situations, encouraging them to develop worthwhile attitudes and ideals, and allowing them to appreciate the acquisition of useful knowledge, habits, and skills.
