FM #403 School Committee Budget Workshop - 12/01/20 (audio)

FM #403 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 403 in the series.

This session shares the Franklin, MA School Committee Budget Workshop held on Tuesday, Dec 1, 2020.

The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: some of the School Committee and Central Office personnel were in the Council Chambers, the remainder of the Committee and public were remote via conference bridge, all to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

Due to my own tech issues, I missed recording approx 6 minutes of the opening and overview for the workshop. We join in as Chair Anne Bergen turns the meeting to Superintendent Sara Ahern to begin the detailed walk through.

The recording runs approx 90 minutes. Let’s listen to the School Committee budget workshop of Dec 1, 2020.
