FM #284 FPS Superintendent Sara Ahern 5/31/20 (audio)

FM #284 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 284 in the series.

This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Franklin Public Schools Superintendent Sara Ahern. We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talk about
  • School budget for FY 2021 and the decision process
  • What does school in Sept look like?
  • Remote learning to close out this school year
  • Graduation planning for June 5
Links to the key web page references we make are included in the show notes

The recording runs about 42 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Sara.   Audio file =
