Online Student Resources
The Williamson County Schools Student Learning Plan and Learning Resources Spring 2020 are available online. Both are posted on the Student Resources page of the WCS website, but these resources must be accessed through each student’s ClassLink dashboard. Videos with instructions on how to access each resource are available in the drop-down menus on the Student Resources page.

Senior Graduation
The Franklin High in-person graduation is scheduled for Sunday, July 19, 2020 at 2:00 PM. The ceremony will be held at Williamson County Ag Expo Center. This date is contingent upon social distancing guidelines in place at the time of the event. The district’s graduation window was amended by the School Board after a survey showed that 85 percent of those families who responded preferred an in-person graduation.

Checkpoint Driver Safety Classes

To park on campus students must have a driver’s license and attend a virtual Checkpoint Driver Safety Class. Dates for all Checkpoint Driver Safety Classes are listed below.

All classes over the summer will be virtual Zoom sessions. The student and at least one parent must be part of the course. The course usually takes around 44 minutes to an hour. Students, please check your school email prior to the meeting date and join the Google Classroom to sign up for the course. The google classroom code has been emailed to students and parents. June zoom meetings will host only 30 students at a time. The capacity in June will be evaluated and adjusted as needed for remaining dates.

Students who have already completed a Checkpoints Course in past do not need to take it again.

When more is known about what the start of the school year will look like, a plan will be created for selling parking permits and information will be made available at that time. Again, students will not be sold a permit without a completed Checkpoint Course on record.

Checkpoint Course Dates
June 10, 2020 at 6:00 PM
June 24, 2020 at 6:00 PM
July 8, 2020 at 6:00 PM
July 22, 2020 at 6:00 PM

Check your email for the link to the zoom meeting, which will be sent the Monday before each course.  Email Mitchell Robertson with additional questions.
