FM #379 SchoolComm Davis Thayer FA Mtg - 10/29/20 (audio)

FM #379 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 379 in the series. 

This session shares the Franklin, MA Davis Thayer Facility Analysis Subcommittee meeting held on Thursday, Oct 29, 2020. The meeting was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

Quick Recap:

  • Meeting opened 7 minutes late. Prior meeting minutes approved.
  • Review of current step by step process and where they are, now in Phase 2 of Stage 1 (see chart)
  • Specialized programs conducted at DT and Parmenter not part of the analysis and should be considered. Concern over turnkey reference. Appearing to rush into keeping the mentioned Nov 4 community information night (when it will have conflict with the Town Council meeting, and won’t be able to be broadcast).
  • Discussion around the work of this committee to complete in their term (before Nov 2021) and work of another ‘long term’ committee as separate.
  • Discussion on questionnaire, what it captures, what does success look like, and communications around that survey and for the meeting itself

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda and to the presentation document.

The recording runs about 64 minutes, so let’s listen to the Davis Thayer Facility Analysis Subcommittee meeting of Oct 29, 2020.
