2020-21 Academic Year
Due to Coronavirus related challenges, Franklin Academy will unfortunately not be able to provide bus transportation for the 2020-21 academic year. We plan on resuming our bus service for the 2021-22 academic year.
2021-2022 (and beyond)
Once your child has been accepted to Franklin Academy, you may request bus transportation during the online registration process. Transportation is available on a limited basis. Franklin Academy offers 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 are conveniently located near 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.
Please enter your home address only. When transportation is assigned, a bus pass will be emailed. Bus passes for registered students will be emailed two weeks before the start of school. Bus stops are subject to change from year-to-year.
Parents are welcome to drive their students to and from our campus. Franklin Academy utilizes DashPass as our dismissal system to manage pick-up and drop-off traffic. Detailed procedures on the arrival and dismissal processes can be found in the Policies & Procedures section of the website.
In the COVID-19 era of education, school safety protocols are paramount. DashPass is an easy, automated mobile platform to extend facility-wide security measures through the entire dismissal process. Learn more about DashPass here.
