Franklin School Committee - Recap - July 23, 2019

With short attendance (five of seven members participating), and a light agenda, the School Committee meeting on Tuesday July 23, 2019 conducted its business efficiently in about 40 minutes. 

The major item of discussion was the Committee evaluation of Superintendent Sara Ahern. The documentation referred to by the Chair and members of the committee during the discussion is not yet available on the School Committee page. It should not be a surprise that the Superintendent was well reviewed. Her performance in my view has been very good in trying circumstances.

One of the key items for the next meeting is the review of updates to the school handbooks. The link to the current version is shared here. The meeting version for the Committee will show potential changes inline with current text. There will also be a summary of the changes for each handbook school by school. The handbooks changes are in legal review now and will be made available to the Committee before the next meeting. Whether the public also gets to review the changes before hand was not discussed.

The text of the Superintendent's update can be found online
