Before teachers at Webb and Union Elementary schools send misbehaving students to the principal’s office, they first check to see if she’s in that day.

Sandra Brown has been principal of Webb Elementary for the past seven years, and this year she also became principal of Union Elementary. That makes her the only principal in Johnson County, and one of the few in the state, overseeing two schools at once.

About 440 students attend Webb or Union elementary schools, and the total is close to the enrollment at most of Franklin’s other elementary schools. Still, the two schools are 20 minutes apart, and Brown doesn’t like to split her time between the buildings each day. Brown spends about two and a half days at each school every week.
