New Math Standards Overview for Students in Kindergarten Through Eighth Grade
In 2012, the State Board of Education adopted new mathematics standards, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The standards for kindergarten through eighth grade are being fully implemented this school year. Revised standards for high school mathematics will be implemented in the 2015-2016 school year.

The changes made at the state level to the mathematics TEKS (standards) were quite extensive and affect our Franklin ISD Mathematics Curriculum. Some TEKS have shifted down from other grade levels while others are brand new. In order to prepare for these changes, FISD has been working over the past year to prevent gaps in learning as students transition to the new expectations.

Sports Physicals Required for All Athletes
In efforts to increase safety and prevention in athletics, FISD is requiring ANNUAL physicals for all student-athletes. Annual screening of athletes is imperative because medical conditions can change from year to year and the development of subtle issues may be overlooked. The pre-participation exam is designed to help identify athletes that may be at risk for medical issues before he or she participates in a sport.

Physical can be obtained by your primary physician or orthopedic doctor. Mass sports physicals were offered by FISD on May 22. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Marissa Jones at mjones@franklinisd.net or 979.255.5409.
