The Franklin Lakes Board of Education has announced there will be a Board seat available effective August 11, 2014.  This seat has become available due to the resignation for personal reasons of Mr. Anthony Zolfo. The appointed member would serve through the January, 2016 organizational meeting.
 
The public is invited to apply for the vacant seat on the Board of Education by sending a letter of interest and a list of qualifications or resume to Mr. Larry Loprete, Board of Education President, at 490 Pulis Avenue.  Please send all written information to arrive by noon on September 5, 2014.

FAMS Digital Learning Presentation

FAMS Digital Learning Committee (DLC) was formed in December of 2012 with the goal of determining the needs of the middle school students in regards to digital and online learning, workplace and 21st century skills and online assessments. The DLC is made up of a cross section of teachers from the middle school and administrators. We started to meet as a group in January of 2013 and after much discussion came to the conclusion that the tool we needed to address all areas of concern was a Learning Management System or LMS.

The DLC met formally eight times over the past year. Committee members also worked within their team meetings to inform colleagues of our work and to gather information. The committee kept the full middle school faculty informed by presenting to them at three faculty meetings throughout the past year. All of the stakeholders, (staff, students and parents), were surveyed in order to gauge their position on this initiative. The response was in favor of moving to 1:1 computing.  On 1/28/14 the Committee presented their work to the BOE.

The committee has determined that  Macintosh  will be the best solution for our students. Our expectations of our students far exceed the basic types of uses that simple devices provide. Our work continues as we discuss, among other things, student responsibilities and rules and expectation of acceptable use. We are reaching out to neighboring districts that have already implemented 1:1 initiatives to help guide our work. We look forward to continuing to "provide the students in Franklin Lakes with a comprehensive, academically challenging, educational program that recognizes the individual needs of students and responds to the changing demands of our society". (BOE Mission Statement)
