The Franklin Special School District (FSSD) offers a special education program for children aged three to five who have developmental delays. The service delivery model is a school program and includes positive role models for peers in each special education preschool class. To be eligible, students must be 4 years old by August 15 and reside or have an employed parent in the Franklin Special School District. The school day is 6 hours a day, Monday through Friday.
The inclusion model provides a wide range of learning opportunities and the least restrictive environment, which is both stimulating and challenging for both groups of children. It also promotes belonging, friendships, understanding, and acceptance of others who are different. The Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) began on Monday across the state for all students in third through eighth grades, and Freedom High School said it expects all test scores to reach pre-pandemic levels. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the Tennessee Department of Special Education provide specific criteria for meeting the requirements to receive special education. Franklin Special School District daycare, WeeMac, is open year-round for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years, providing a nurturing environment in which to grow and learn.
The Franklin Special School District's volunteer pre-kindergarten program provides a high-quality educational program through an active learning approach. Williamson County Schools (WCS) special education aims to provide the least restrictive environment (LRE) for all students in accordance with the mandate of the Education for People with Disabilities Act (IDEA). If space allows, students who have disabilities, are identified as English language learners, are in state custody, or are identified as students at educational risk of failing due to circumstances of abuse or neglect can be served.
