The Franklin Township Public Schools are a community public school district that serves students in kindergarten through sixth grade from Franklin Township, in Gloucester County, New Jersey, United States.

As of the 2014-15 school year, the district and its three schools had an enrollment of 2,632 students and 109.9 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 23.9:1.[1]

The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group "CD", the sixth-highest of eight groupings. District Factor Groups organize districts statewide to allow comparison by common socioeconomic characteristics of the local districts. From lowest socioeconomic status to highest, the categories are A, B, CD, DE, FG, GH, I and J.[3]

Students in public school from Newfield attend the Franklin Township district's schools as part of a sending/receiving relationship in which Newfield accounts for about 100 of the nearly 1,400 students in the district.[4]

For seventh through twelfth grades, students attend the Delsea Regional School District, which serves students from both Elk Township and Franklin Township.[5] Students from Newfield attend the district as part of a sending/receiving relationship begun in September 2010 after Newfield ended its prior relationship with the Buena Regional School District.[6] Schools in the district (with 2014-15 enrollment data from the National Center for Education Statistics[7]) are Delsea Regional Middle School[8] with 537 students in grades 7 and 8, and Delsea Regional High School[9] with 1,164 students in grades 9 - 12.[10][11]

The New Jersey Department of Education has considered a vote by the Franklin Township Board of Education in June 2010 requesting that the district withdraw from the Delsea Regional School District, which would require that the Delsea region be dissolved as about 80% of the regional district's students come from Franklin. With the withdrawal of Franklin Township, two options being considered were to either have Franklin and Elk Townships create a new regional district with Newfield students attending on a send-receive basis, or having Franklin Township establish its own PreK-12 district which would receive students from both Elk Township and Newfield.[12][13]
