Franklin Community Middle School named Four Star School
The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) announced that Franklin Community Middle School was named a 2014-2015 Four Star school. According to the IDOE, in order to achieve
this designation, a school must be in the top 25th percentile of schools in two
ISTEP-based categories. Additionally, a qualifying school must have earned the
highest designation in the state’s accountability system and be accredited by
the Indiana Department of Education. A total of 287 schools received the award
throughout the state.
FCMS Principal Steve Ahaus said, "Being recognized as a Four Star School was an amazing way to close out the school year. For a staff that has taken on a lot of change over the last few years, it reinforces that their hard work has made an impact. We have outstanding students and a passionate staff who have worked hard to earn this recognition!"
“I am pleased to
recognize Indiana’s Four Star Schools today,” said Glenda Ritz, Indiana’s
Superintendent of Public Instruction. “I applaud the hard-work and
dedication of the students, educators and families at these exceptional schools
as we transitioned to more rigorous college-and-career ready standards and
assessments last year.”
