Franklin Residents who would like to take bus transportation for the 2019-2020 school year will be contacted by email by the Franklin Transportation Department . We expect them to reach out the week after April Vacation with further details about this process.
Franklin Residents in Grades 6-8 who plan to take the bus to school in the morning will take their neighborhood high school bus to Franklin High School, disembark and take a transfer bus to BFCCPS. Students arrive at 7:30am at BFCCPS and will go to Before School Care, chorus or band.
Regional and Non-Regional Residents:
If you have a student enrolled at BFCCPS for the 2019-2020 school year and live outside of Franklin it is time to complete the Regional Transportation Interest form. This form is due by April 5, 2019 so that we can begin planning route development.
Families who reside outside of Franklin must complete this form once for each student you will have enrolled at BFCCPS during the 2019-2020 school year.
School Dismissal Manager:
This year we will be implementing a new piece of software to automate dismissal changes and absence notification. We piloted School Dismissal Manager internally at the end of last year and were very pleased with the results.
Using School Dismissal Manager with your desktop or smartphone browser, you can quickly and easily update instructions when your child’s dismissal needs to be changed.
This service will take place of the practice of making dismissal changes through the main office. The easy-to-use mobile and desktop interface will allow you to make these changes in advance or for the current day. You can also report absences, early dismissals, and even schedule recurring dismissal instructions for after-school activities such as Art Club, Drama Kids, Science Club or Lego League on the desktop version. Free apps are also available for Android and iPhone users.
School Dismissal Manager will provide us with a more organized and efficient tracking system for afternoon dismissals.
All BFCCPS received registration details on Wednesday, August 15th. We ask all families to update their dismissal instructions using School Dismissal Manager by 9 am on August 24th so we can ensure we have accurate information on how your child(ren) should be sent home. If you need assistance with your School Dismissal Manager account school personnel will be available during the Back to School Celebration on Thursday, August 24th.

Bus Passes will be required for all students riding either a Franklin or Regional Bus. Details about bus pass pickup will be available over the summer.
Be sure to login to School Dismissal Manager to update your child’s default dismissal instructions before picking up your bus pass.
Bus passes must be picked up before the first day of school.
