2nd Annual Legislative Forum - Feb 5

"The Franklin School Committee will hold its 2nd Annual Legislative Forum on Education on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 7-8:30 PM, in the auditorium at Horace Mann Middle School (note this is a location change!). 
The event, hosted by the Public Schools Advocacy Sub-Committee of the Franklin School Committee, will feature Senate President Karen Spilka, and state Rep. Jeffrey Roy. 
Join these elected officials for a discussion as they provide updates and insights on legislative initiatives directly impacting public schools in general and Franklin in particular. 
For this year’s forum, the organizers have expanded the focus to include issues beyond funding, including:
  • Developmentally appropriate practices (such as recess and start times);
  • addressing the physical, emotional and social needs of students;
  • college, career and civic readiness;
  • impacts of the current funding formula on the FY 2020 budget and beyond, and 
  • special education and associated costs."
