  • Principal's End Of Year Message

    Posted by Allyson Billodeau at 5/18/2017

    It is hard to believe how quickly the school year has passed and come to an end.  I would like to thank all of you for your faith, trust, and commitment to the mission of Franklin High School.  It is your belief in educational values that help us to sustain our school.  This was a very busy year and you, as partners in education, played a great role in making it a sucess!

     

    Although it is a hectic time of year, it is the time when I most realize how blessed we all are to be part of Franklin High School.  Parents and teachers commit their time and energy every day toward creating a nuturing environment in whcih students can thrive!  We wish our graduating seniors all the best as they journey on to new places and continue their education.  Graduation is a time for celebration and reflection on the impact education has made on each student, and parents proudly see their child become a Franklin High School graduate. 

     

    In closing, I take this opportunity to congratulate all students of Franklin High School. I wish you all a very happy, safe, and enjoyable summer. Please be sure to take time as a family to talk, play, and pray together. I look forward to seeing you all in August.

    Sincerely,

    Ty Burdett

    Franklin High School, Principal

  • What Do You Know About Cybersecurity?

    Posted by Susan Dupre at 4/19/2017 6:00:00 AM

    The Pew Research Center has created a quiz to measure what people know about basic online issues. Before you read any further, I invite you to take the quiz yourself:  http://www.pewinternet.org/quiz/cybersecurity-knowledge/   (By the way, we've talked about all of these issues as part of this CyberSafe blog.)

    This quiz points out how complicated cybersecurity is. Only 20% of the initial 1055 respondents answered more than 8 of the 13 questions correctly, and only 1% received a perfect score. 

    According to the survey's initial results, most people could recognize that a strong password includes upper and lower case letters, numerals, and does not contain a word in the dictionary.  Likewise, most people know that public WiFi--even when it is password protected--is not safe for sensitive activities like banking.

    So, where are the gaps in our knowledge?

    • Only half of the respondents could correctly identify a phishing attack.
    • Nearly 60% did not realize that an internet service provider (ISP) can still see the sites they access when they are using "private browsing" mode.
    • Only 33% knew that the "s" in any URL beginning with "https://" indicates that the traffic on that site is encrypted to protect data.

    Equally concerning, a significant number of respondents answered "not sure" to many questions.  More than 50% of respondents were "not sure" about the private browsing questions and the "https://" question, and 70% or more were not sure what a botnet or a VPN connection could do.

    Is there a difference in responses based on age or education? Yes, those who had higher levels of education did slightly better on the quiz. However, on several questions, users aged 65 and older were just as knowledgeable as those ages 18-29.  In fact, 18-to 29-year olds answered 6 out of 13 questions correctly, while those 65 or older answered 5 out of 13 correct answers.
