FM #321 FPS Supt Sara Ahern Reopening Status - 7/31/20

Updated 3 months ago.

FM #321 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 321 in the series.

This session shares my conversation with Superintendent Sara Ahern regarding the school fall re-opening status. Our conversation was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

Sara provides an overview on the task force and process to work on the preliminary plan. The preliminary plan is due to be submitted to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) by close of business on Friday, July 31.

The show notes contain links to the School Committee meeting agenda and reference documents as well as the audio from the meeting covering the preliminary plan and discussion.

Our conversation runs about 11 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Sara on the preliminary plan and process.
