Parent/Guardian Survey

This spring, the Philadelphia School District’s Office of Research and Evaluation is requiring ALL District and Charter schools to administer an annual survey to parents regarding the quality of education in Philadelphia schools. The surveys are intended to help school and District leaders to understand what key members of the school community think about the learning environment at each school. Information captured by the survey will be used to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make each school a better place to learn.

You will need to use your child's student ID number that is printed on their school ID in order to access the online survey.  Please use the link below, and thank you for all that you do to support Franklin Towne.

ATTENTION SENIOR PARENTS

As part of this year’s graduation requirements, all seniors must successfully complete the Senior Thesis Paper which requires them to independently select a topic, conduct research and write a paper about a current issue.   Some students have selected topics that, while not inherently inappropriate, may result in their exposure to content that, as a parent, you may not find permissible.  Please discuss with your child the topic they have selected and if you find that they have selected one that you do not approve of assist them to choose one you deem appropriate.  Please feel free to contact the English Department Chair, Jennifer Craig at jcraig@ftchs.org, with any questions.
