This year, Franklin Middle School is participating in an online course selection pilot program, as a 1:1 FCPSOn school. With assistance from their current school counselor, Rising 7th and Rising 8th-grade students will be entering course selections into their SIS Student VUE accounts. Parents can VIEW course selections at any time, but cannot make changes through a Parent VUE account. Any changes to course selections can be made by contacting the school counselor. Resources for Student VUE selection process and Parent VUE viewing resources are linked below. Questions? Contact Zena Chapman, Director of Student Services at @email.



Need a Parent Vue account? If you are a current Franklin MS student please call Franklin Middle School Front Office at 703-904-5151. If your student is currently a 6th grader, you need to contact your child's Elementary School. This year Brookfield, Lees Corner, Navy, Oak Hill, and Waples Mill will be participating in an online course selection pilot.
