School Committee - Oct 13, 2105 - Meeting Summary

The School Committee meeting of Tuesday, October 13 lasted approximately 50 minutes and covered the following items:

The Annie Sullivan and Remington Middle School Improvement Plans were reviewed. Copies are available. (Recall the Horace Mann Improvement Plan was covered in the last Sep meeting.)

Superintendent Sabolinski provided the School Committee an overview of the NEASC accreditation process as it had been about 10 years since the last on site visit. The completion of the new FHS building had finally taken the district off warning status. The visit had been scheduled initially for the first year of the school operation and by mutual agreement with NEASC was rescheduled to 2017.

The policy on family leave was reviewed for an update and the policy on international students was recommended for removal. The international student policy was significantly out of date and as the school district was not accepting outside students for School Choice, there was no capacity for international students. Franklin students do get to travel internationally so the interchange is covered on that front.

Superintendent Sabolinski received her review and was marked 'exemplary'. Other School Committee members concurred with the results of the subcommittee. 

Of note: Asst Superintendent Sally Winslow will be retiring at the end of the current school year. She will be missed after being here seven years. Up for discussion and vote at the next School Committee meeting will be the recommendation for Peter Light to move into Sally's Asst Superintendent spot with Paul Peri moving into Peter's role as principal at FHS.

Additional details can be found in the notes as reported live during the meeting:
