Course Registration for Current Rising 7th and 8th Grade Students
School counselors will be working with students in early February to register for courses for the upcoming school year. Course descriptions and information on requirements can be found in the catalog. Questions regarding course registration can be answered by your child's counselor. Parents of rising 7th-grade students are encouraged to speak with their child's 6th-grade teacher and school counselor to assist in choosing appropriate courses for the next school year.
More information about FCPS Middle School programs and departments can be found on the FCPS Middle school site.
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 Tami Brumett, Director of Student Services.
