School Programs

School Programs

Franklin School has a rich and challenging curriculum and a talented teaching team in our classrooms. We also have a number of special programs that benefit and/or enrich some or all of our students. 


Music Grades 4-5:

Our Instrumental Music teacher provides formal music instruction for 4th and 5th grade students. Students in these grades may choose to participate in instrumental music. Small group lessons are given weekly. As students become proficient on their instrument, they are invited to join the school band.

Music Grades TK-5:

All students receive music instruction from a credentialed specialist.   Students have weekly classroom instruction.

Physical Education (PE):

All students receive Physical Education instruction. Our Physical Education teacher stresses cooperation, problem solving, safety, concern for others, responsibility for equipment, and team play. Physical skill development is an important part of educational growth. 


Our Library Aide provides library services such as: read-alouds, digital citizenship lessons, book check-out, and lunchtime reading clubs. Classes visit the library once a week for 30 minutes while the librarian is there.  Students are also encouraged to visit the library when it is open during recess and lunch to check out material, read a book, or wok on homework.


DID YOU KNOW...there's a √ check-off on your California Tax Return for school libraries! This is a great way to support California's children. 


Students use computers and other technology tools in the classroom, facilitated by their classroom teacher. 

Resource Program (RSP):

The Resource Specialist serves students who require modification of their regular education program. Such students have exceptional needs and are provided special small group instruction according to the guidelines of an Individual Education Program. The Resource Specialist and classroom teachers collaborate to develop curriculum adaptations and materials to meet individual student needs. 

Speech/ Language:

The Speech/Language Specialist serves students with special needs in articulation, fluency, voice and language development according to the guidelines of an Individual Education Program. The goals are developed by the specialist, classroom teacher, and parent. 

Response to Intervention (RTI):

Based on data from student assessments, the RTI teacher will work with classroom teachers to support students.  This program is designed to provide targeted instruction to students within the classroom or in small groups as determined by the data.

English Learners (EL):

English Language Learners Program serves students who speak a language other than English in their homes. Students work with a specially trained teacher in small groups to increase their fluency in English. The EL teacher works with the classroom teacher to help students become successful in the regular classroom.
