FM #277 School Committee - Community Relations SubComm 5/20/20 (audio)

FM #277 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 277 in the series.

This session shares the Community Relations SubCommittee (of the School Committee) held a meeting on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. The meeting was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

SubCommittee chair Denise Spencer and members Anne Bergen, Judy Pfeffer participated. Anne Marie Tracey and Superintendent Sara Ahern participated during this session. Glenn Jones attended the meeting and used the “chat” function during the session, as I did.

Most of the discussion revolved around continuing the S’More newsletter service or using the Town account for Constant Contact. Details on contact listing, workflow, frequency (monthly/quarterly), info to be shared, etc.

Graphic on expanding roles of school personnel previewed during the meeting, soon to be used in communications. The graphic was shared via the screen but not yet released. (Actually released on 5/26/20 after this recorded was prepared for publication)

The recording runs about 37 minutes, so let’s listen to the Communications SubCommittee meeting of May 20, 2020.   Audio file =
