Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to enhance the academic performance of students in Franklin Community Schools by providing programs which the corporation can not provide itself due to budget constraints.

1. Recruit new Study Buddies to work with students on the waiting list for Study Connection.
2. Provide Study Buddies with the training and support they need to help their Students.
3. Work with teachers to develop grant applications which support the Education Foundation's Mission, Vision and Purpose; align with state standards; align with school corporation values; and promote collaboration among classes, grades or schools.
4. Identify system-wide programs which will enhance the academic performance of all students.

Our board is comprised of school and community leaders dedicated to improving the academic achievement of students. Our staff is experienced in the areas of public relations/marketing, fund raising, program development and board development. Our volunteer Study Buddies are caring individuals also dedicated to improving the academic achievement of their Students. We have a retention rate of 82% for our Study Connection volunteers.

Franklin Education Connection was created in September, 2013 when the Study Connection Board amended its by-laws to incorporate the Education Foundation into its structure. At that time, there was one part-time contracted staff administering Study Connection. A second part-time staff was contracted as Director of Development in February, 2014. The majority of work since then has revolved around board development and merging the two boards, and branding the new organization. We are just beginning to measure the indicators listed elsewhere and will focus our efforts in the next 12 months on creating processes to measure and report our progress.
