Franklin Area School District


The mission of the Franklin Area School District, in partnership with students, families, and the community, is to graduate life-long learners who become responsible members of society.

Franklin will offer free meals to all students for the 2022-2023 school year through federal program

Franklin Area School District will offer free lunches and breakfasts to all students this year as the District has qualified for federal funding for the meals through the “Community Eligible Provision (CEP).” The federal CEP program is a reimbursement program for eligible schools in high poverty areas. We received the announcement today (August 24, 2022).

All enrolled students of FASD are eligible to receive a nutritional breakfast and lunch each school day at no charge to your household.

No further action is required of you. Families do not need to turn in hard-copy free and reduced-price meal applications. Your child(ren) will be able to participate this meal program without paying a fee or submitted an application.

Extra items such as chips, snacks, ice cream and second meal will be an additional charge. Charging for additional items is not permitted.

Students that pack must pay $0.60 for milk.

Meal Payment

Funds can be added to a student’s cafeteria account online through (follow the link below) or by sending cash or a check with your student to school. If you don’t have an account on, create an account to access your student(s) cafeteria account. If you have more than one student, you can add funds to one student and transfer funds to the others.

Franklin Area School District to Offer an Updated Cyber Option for Families

In the 2022-2023 School Year

Franklin, Pennsylvania: The Franklin Area School District (FASD) is updating their cyber school for families for the 2022-2023 school year. The Franklin First Learning Academy (FFLA) started last year and was available for students in grades K-12. FFLA offered a 100% online and digital curriculum in a virtual learning model. Instruction will be provided with a new, enhanced, and research-based curriculum that is aligned to the PA Core Standards. Respectively, FFLA is partnering with Warren County School District to offer a rigorous curriculum that has been time-tested for over a decade. Each course is supported by Pennsylvania-certified teachers.

With these exciting upgrades, the newest and most exciting change is that FFLA will offer live sessions in addition to its regular, self-paced platform. Elementary school (K-5) will have live Zoom sessions for students in English and mathematics. The middle school (6-8) will have live Zoom sessions in English, mathematics, science, and social studies. With the live sessions, all students’ needs and learning styles will be met which will ultimately improve student success. Even the high school will continue with its flexibility as to when they can complete coursework (self-paced and accelerated) including live sessions throughout the year.

As in the past, students attending the FFLA receive FASD credits and an FASD diploma. Students are eligible to participate in FASD extra-curricular activities and sports. In addition, students can elect to attend the local vocational school and programs.

High school students can opt to enroll full time in the Academy or to supplement their course schedule with virtual courses. This will allow students access to courses not typically offered in high school, the opportunity to accelerate and challenge their learning, and opportunities to remediate areas of need. This new and enhanced model will provide room for growth, opportunity, and innovation as it grows annually.

Enrollment information for the FFLA will be available soon. A family information night is scheduled for August 16th at 6:00 p.m. at Franklin Area high school auditorium. For more information or questions, please call Mr. John Bianconi, FFLA Administrator, at 814-432-2121 or by email at
