What happened to Franklin
as a result of Integrated Service Delivery?
ISD brought sweeping changes to the Franklin instructional program.
How did the community determine assess these changes?
In a staff survey conducted in 1999, many teachers felt ISD
had a positive effect on their classes. Some teacher comments:
A father of one of my ESL children said his son, who
is in my class, had learned more in kindergarten than any
other child' in his family of five. I also had one of his
daughters in my room last year, but in a class of 23 not 17
and with a pull out program.
Each day, the children are part of the planning for
the day. They know they will be part of each and every activity
that takes place during the day. The unit of study is common
to all the children. The experience are shared and provide
a basis for conversation throughout the day.
