This session shares the Franklin, MA School Committee meeting held on Tuesday, Jan 12, 2021.

The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: some of the School Committee and Central Office personnel were in the Council Chambers, the remainder of the Committee was remote via conference bridge, all to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

I’ve split the three hour meeting into two logical segments:
First - covers the opening through the K-1Survey Results review (approx 2 hour and 12 minutes)
Second - picks up from the Superintendent's reopening status update at which point public comments on the K-1 and re-opening status through to the end of the public meeting as they entered Executive Session (not to return to public meeting) (approx 50 minutes)

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda and to my notes. The meeting packet folder will hold the other documents released for the meeting (as we go to press, the Superintendent’s Report is not yet updated due to the holiday break)

Let’s listen to this segment of the School Committee meeting of Jan 12, 2021
