BROOKVILLE — The Franklin County School Board selected Keith Isaacs to become the next Franklin County High School principal.

Isaacs brings 26 years of educational experience to his new position and will continue with the Early College High School initiative and the implementation of Chromebooks for every student. Mr. Isaacs is a past recipient of the Department of Air Force Outstanding Technology Teacher Award, the I-STAR award, and the Lilly Endowment “Teacher Creativity Grant.”
He is a member of the Indiana Association of School Principals and the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development.
