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.”
