"Our Children , Our Community, Our Future" Bond Election

“Our Children, Our Community, Our Future” Franklin ISD School Board calls Elections for November 3, 2020 BOND ELECTION: I&S (Bond) TAX RATE WILL DECREASE 14 CENTS The Franklin ISD Board re-instated the Order to call a bond election for November 3, 2020 to replace the bond package that was canceled last May due to Covid-19. The 2020 bond package has not changed since May 2020. Bonds are a vital part of how the district structures its budget each year to keep tax dollars in Franklin and prevent the tax rate from increasing. VATRE ELECTION: M&O (Maintenance & Operation) TAX RATE WILL INCREASE 3 CENTS The Board also called a Voter Approved Tax Rate Election (VATRE) asking voters to allow the district to move three of the district’s I&S (bond) pennies over to the M&O (maintenance and operation) side of the tax rate. These three pennies will now be considered Golden pennies and NOT be subject to Recapture under the new school finance law House Bill 3. These three golden pennies will be used to support the proposed 2020-2021 salary increase for the FISD teachers and staff. In the past, this has not been an option for Franklin ISD. FISD OVERALL TAX RATE DECREASES 11 CENTS FOR 2020 More information about the November Bond and VATRE will be released soon.

Healthcare Covid 19

Health Care Information In order to help decrease the spread of COVID-19, as a school district we are asking students, staff, and parents to follow the guidelines put out, by local, state, and national health officials. Take steps to protect yourself and your family. Clean your hands often Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid close contact Avoid close contact with people who are sick Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick. Avoid unnecessary travel, to reduce the risk of being exposed to COVID-19. Take steps to protect others Stay home if you’re sick Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Cover coughs and sneezes Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Wear a facemask if you are sick If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers. Clean and disinfect Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks. If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. For further information please visit: cdc.gov or dshs.texas.gov
