District Announcements
New Student Registration

Dear Incoming Parents and Guardians:
 
Welcome to the Franklin Lakes School District!  We are pleased to inform you about the new streamlined procedure for registering new students entering Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.  We have implemented an electronic open registration process for the 2015-16 school year.  We hope this new procedure will simplify the registration process for both our new families and for our staff.
 
In order to begin the open registration process, please click on the link below:
 
Open Registration
 
Once you have completed and submitted your initial registration, you will be contacted shortly by the appropriate school(s) with further instructions on how to complete the registration process.  Parents of students who will enter Kindergarten in September 2015 may register their children who were born on or before October 1, 2010.
 
We look forward to your active participation and support.  I am confident that our district will provide a dynamic, comprehensive and meaningful program to meet your child's educational needs.
 
Sincerely,
Lydia E. Furnari, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools

FAMS Digital Learning Presentation
Click HERE to view the FAMS Digital Learning Community Presentation to the Board of Education.

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)
