Franklin Public Schools provides a free and appropriate public education to students with disabilities from age 3-21 in an environment that is deemed least restrictive for each student. Special education and related service personnel include special education teachers, a school psychologist, a speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist and a physical therapist who provide services to students as outlined in an individual education plan (IEP). All special education personnel collaborate with regular education staff to ensure special needs students are able to successfully participate in the regular education curriculum to the greatest extent possible.
Students at the high school level receive services at their designated high school.
