Registered students aren't the only ones learning in the Franklin County School system.
Starting this month, sheriff's deputies will teach parents of seventh graders about their legal rights and responsibilities.
The program lasts three months.
It's part of Virginia's Class Action program -- in which law enforcement officials teach law to middle and high school students.
The Franklin County pilot program received 20-thousand-dollars in support from the Governor's Office.

Methodists created this school, guide it and give it money.

If the ban were approved, even students who can legally drink could not drink here.
