Each week during the school year, Superintendent Chrissy Jones recognizes students, schools, clubs and/or staff who have done things worthy of celebration. We call them our Kids First Shout-outs. Here are the Shout-outs for this week! 
Former EMS Student Wins State Award
On Saturday, September 19th, FCHS freshman Don Allen Slaughter was awarded the Student Technology Award by the Kentucky Association of School Libraries. Allen was nominated his 8th grade year by Elkhorn Middle School librarian Kate Osterloh for his work on the WELK news. During his 8th grade year, Allen served as Editor of the WELK news, working with other students to create daily news casts. Allen also created various intros for the news, often on his own time. It was Allen’s idea to share the school news via the website SchoolTube so members of the community could watch. Allen was then selected from candidates across the state. He was awarded at the KASL business luncheon at the Galt House with a certificate and a $100 check.

No tax increase!
We are pleased to report that the Franklin County School Board, which had been considering a tax rate increase, voted on Tuesday evening against such an increase. Board member Doug Crowe explained that the district’s revenue and financial standing is quite strong due to sound financial management practices, higher tax collections than expected, growth in the county’s property tax rolls and a number of other factors. The rest of the board agreed that it is in the best interest of the school district and the entire Franklin County community to forego a tax increase. 
Community & Business Leaders Working on a New Workforce Training Partnership
Representatives from eight local manufacturing companies met on Tuesday with local educators and leaders from various community organizations to begin working on a new partnership aimed at expanding and improving the training provided for the area’s manufacturing employees.
