Franklin County High School

A Message from Mr. Isaacs, FCHS Principal

Wow! I cannot believe that we are already into the second semester. My first semester has been enjoyable. I have had the pleasure of meeting so many fine Franklin County people. I really have been impressed by the acceptance that all of you have given to me. I am happy and honored to be your principal. Franklin County High School is definitely a school on the move and is making great strides to offer more opportunities for our students for the 2015-16 school year that will better prepare them for college and their careers. It is up to the student to take advantage of these opportunities to improve his/her future endeavors whether it be in college, trade school, work, or military.

Our first goal will be in working hard to improve our students’ attendance. Our first semester attendance rate was 94.19% which is below last year’s state average of 96.1%. It is important that students are in class as much as possible. For a student who does not pass his/her ECA tests, one criteria to qualify for a waiver is that the student must maintain a 95% attendance rate over the course of his/her high school career (excused absences are not counted towards a student’s attendance rate.) If you have any ideas for interventions or incentives that could help improve our students’ attendance, please feel free to see me or Mr. Holland or email us those ideas. Our students’ success starts with being at school.

Also, Mr. Holland and the Student Handbook Committee will be working on improving the Wildcat Agenda for the 2015-16 school year to improve some of our policies on attendance, discipline, and dress code. These changes are to improve FCHS and the learning environment. All changes should be presented in the next FCHS Newsletter in the Spring. I am honored to be a Wildcat and to be your high school principal. If you ever have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to email, to call, or to stop in to see me.
