Sports Physicals Required for All Athletes
In efforts to increase safety and prevention in athletics, FISD is requiring ANNUAL physicals for all student-athletes. Annual screening of athletes is imperative because medical conditions can change from year to year and the development of subtle issues may be overlooked. The pre-participation exam is designed to help identify athletes that may be at risk for medical issues before he or she participates in a sport.

Physical can be obtained by your primary physician or orthopedic doctor. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Marissa Jones at mjones@franklinisd.net or 979.255.5409.

FHS Makes List of Best High Schools
An article from The Eagle newspaper recently reported that three Brazos Valley schools have made U.S. News and World Report's list of best high schools. The magazine reviewed data on more than 19,400 U.S. public high schools to compile the list. A&M Consolidated High School was 114 on the state list (1,096 nationally), and Bryan Collegiate High School came it at 134 in the state (1,370 nationally). Franklin High School was ranked 185 in Texas and 1,966 nationally.

The rankings were based on student-teacher ratios, schools' performance on state assessment tests and how well they prepare students for college. The School for the Talented and Gifted in Dallas was the top-ranked school in the country; the Dallas school district's School of Science and Engineering Magnet was eighth in the country. There were no other Texas schools in the top 10.
Student Drug Testing Policy
Franklin ISD board adopted a student drug testing policy that has been implemented since the 2010-2011 school year. All students participating in high school extracurricular activities in grades 7-12 (including all high school clubs, organizations, and sports) along with those students that drive to school will be subjected to drug testing.
