    Welcome to the One Less Move
    On the Move Webpage
    On November 21, 2017 – a meeting of the Referendum Sub Committees was held in the Media Center of Franklin High School.  Superintendent Ravally shared an update on our construction projects; our Middle School Sub Committee Co-Chairpersons, Mr. Solomon and Mrs. Rutledge provided some information on the middle school schedule and Director of Fine Visual and Performing Arts, Roberta Mitchell and Franklin Park Principal Nicole Sury Bevere provided an update on the elementary schedule.  Brian Bonanno, Manager of Human Resources and Personnel Services updated those present on the timeline for staff hiring at Claremont Road School.  Several of the other sub committees prepared updates on their work which will be posted shortly.  We will also be updating our Frequently Asked Question page within the next few weeks.   

    At the November 30, 2017 Board of Education meeting, 7:30 pm in the cafeteria of Franklin High School the architects will present an update on our construction projects as well.

    For your information, maps of the attendance zones approved by the Board of Education which will be in effect in September of 2018 are linked here - middle school and elementary school attendance zones. 

    Here you will find updated information on the implementation of One Less Move Referendum Plan.
    A plan that will build a new elementary school on Claremont Road; allow our fifth grade students to remain in an elementary setting; provide for one Middle School for grades 6, 7 and 8 on two campuses (currently Franklin Middle School and Sampson G. Smith School) and provide facility repairs and upgrades which will improve security and energy efficiency
    To the left you will find pages that explain the history of the referendum- the Road to Referendum and One Less Move.
    You will also find a list of recent questions and answers about the referendum (updated June, 2017); a schedule of upcoming projects and an updated presentation from our architects.
    The Board of Education has appointed Mr. William Grippo, Principal of MacAfee Road School, as Referendum Transition Coordinator.  He, along with Superintendent Dr. John Ravally, are putting together a team to bring updated news to the greater Franklin Community.
