§ Out-of-district students welcome to enroll in District 6
Nov. 4, 2013, through Dec. 19, 2014.
Open Enrollment Applications will be available at every District 6 school office, at the district’s main office at 1025 9th Avenue, and at www.greeleyschools.org/openenrollment. Completed applications must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 19, 2013, at the district’s main office, at your child’s current school, or at the school you are requesting your child to attend.
Information on open enrollment will also be available at the Middle and High School Expo Monday, Nov. 4, from 6-8 p.m. at the University of Northern Colorado, University Center Ballroom at 2045 10th Avenue.
While the district is able to accommodate a majority of open enrollment requests, a student who requests enrollment in schools (or specific grade-levels in a school) that are at or above capacity may be put on a waiting list.
Students who are currently attending a school under open enrollment or transfer will automatically be re-enrolled into the school for the 2014-15 school year, and those parents do not have to complete a new open enrollment application. If, however, a parent wishes to enroll a child back in their home school for the 2014-15 school year, parents should complete a Discontinuation of Open Enrollment / Transfer Application and return it to their current school by Dec. 19, 2013. These forms are also available in the locations listed above.
Open enrollment applicants will be notified in February of their application status. Parents of open enrollment students must provide transportation to and from their approved school.
For more information about open enrollment, please consult the District 6 website, www.greeleyschools.org/openenrollment, or call 348-6265.

Each year, the state of Colorado looks at the performance of our students on state assessments, and gives each school a rating based on an analysis of those scores. These ratings then determine what kind of improvement plan each school will be assigned.
Schools may be required to implement a performance plan, improvement plan, priority improvement plan, or turnaround plan. Performance plans require the least amount of change and turnaround plans require the most dramatic strategies for improvement.
Based on the results, our school is required to develop a turnaround plan. We met expectations in some areas including rate of participation. But according to the ranking, these are areas where we did not meet expectations academic achievement, academic growth and academic growth gaps.
We are in the process of developing a plan to address the areas where we did not meet expectations and will submit a two-year plan to the state by January 15, 2014.
If you would like to have input into the creation of the plan and receive an update on our progress in implementing last year’s plan, please plan to attend our school accountability meetings listed below. All meetings are held in the Franklin library.

Franklin Middle School
This is an extremely exciting time as I start my 28th year in education and embark on my third year as the principal at Franklin Middle School. Our school is led by an experienced and extremely competent staff. They are a group who cares about students and works closely with them during this time of change, both physically and academically.
The following are thoughts to keep in mind for the upcoming school year:
