Transportation is available on a limited basis. Franklin Academy generally offer transportation for students who live between 2 and 8 miles from the campus. If you live within two miles of the campus, you must provide transportation for your child(ren). If you live more than 8 miles from campus, Franklin offers “depot” stops, where families can bring their students to meet the bus. The “depot” stops will be conveniently located near to each of Franklin’s K-8 campuses located in Pembroke Pines, Cooper City and Sunrise. The “depot” stop transportation option is offered on a first come first serve basis, as space is limited. Private transportation companies are permitted as a transportation option for families, so long as the private transportation company follows Franklin’s pick-up & drop-off procedures. Franklin also offers a free carpool matching system to assist families to match with other suitable families for carpooling.
Once your child is enrolled in Franklin Academy, you will have the option to submit a transportation request to Franklin’s transportation company. All transportation requests must be submitted on or before July 29, 2016. In early August the transportation company will provide families with the determination of whether their child(ren) has qualified for transportation, including the bus locations and times for families that qualify, or whether their child(ren) has been placed on a waiting list for transportation.
