FM #313 Franklin (MA) School Committee Re-Opening Update - 7/14/20 (audio)

FM #313 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 313 in the series.

This session shares Superintendent Sara Ahern updates on the school fall re-opening status to the Franklin, MA School Committee meeting held on Tuesday, July 14, 2020. The meeting was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

Sara acknowledges much work is underway, much work remains to be done, she does not have all the answers, and the info shared may still change. The initial plan will be reviewed by the School Committee at their July 28 meeting before being submitted to the State by July 31, 2020.

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda and reference documents.

The statement runs just about 25 minutes, so let’s listen to Sara's statement updating the School Committee and community on July 14.
