Franklin, MA: School Committee - Budget SubCommittee 6/05/20 (audio)

FM #289 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 289 in the series.

This session shares the Franklin, MA School Committee Budget SubCommittee meeting held on Friday, June 5, 2020. The meeting was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

School Superintendent Sara Ahern and Subcommittee Chair Ann Bergen open the meeting (late due to some technical difficulties). Each person who speaks is announced. The show notes contain links to the meeting packet and to the individual documents referenced.

There is audio distortion as a number of folks who connected did not properly mute their connection. There were about 40 or so participants initially and then another 20 or so joined the meeting so the muting advice needed to be re-done. Eventually the meeting ‘sounded’ good.

The recording runs just under an hour (58 mins) , so let’s listen to the budget SubCommittee meeting of June 5.  Audio file =
