Measure R - 2020 Facilities Bond Measure Information

Measure R will be on the March 3, 2020 ballot in the Primary Election. 
FRANKLIN-McKINLEY SCHOOL DISTRICT IS PREPARING CHILDREN FOR SUCCESS IN SCHOOL AND LIFE. As a Transitional Kindergarten to 8th grade school district, we believe all students should have access to 21st century classrooms and school facilities. In addition, we believe: 
  1. All children deserve a well-rounded education to become lifelong learners.
  2. Learners flourish in a nurturing, safe, and challenging environment.
BUILDING BRIGHT FUTURES INCLUDES SAFE, MODERN CLASSROOMS AND SCHOOL FACILITIES. Our 16 schools - 4 Elementary Schools (TK-6), 4 Elementary Schools (K-6), 1 Elementary School (TK-3), 1 Elementary/Middle School (4-8), 2 Elementary/Middle Schools (TK-8), 1 Elementary/Middle School (K-8), 3 Middle Schools (7-8) - are preparing our children for success in the careers of tomorrow through S.T.E.A.M., project-based learning, youth leadership, and college/career readiness programs. Safe, modern classrooms and school facilities are critical to a high quality education. According to a recent study titled, Designing Classrooms to Maximize Student Achievement, scientific research shows how the physical classroom environment influences student achievement.
