FM #472 - School Committee Meeting - 02/23/21 - P2 of 3 (audio)

 FM #472 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 472 in the series. 

This session shares the Franklin, MA School Committee meeting held on Tuesday, Feb 23, 2021. 

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

I’ve split the just over two hour and fifty minute meeting into three logical segments:

  • First -  covers the opening through the JF Kennedy presentation (approx. 1 hour 9 minutes)
  • *** Second segment *** Presentation - Town Administrator Jamie Hellen, Health Director Cathleen Liberty, Fire Chief Jim McLaughlin covering the COVID-19 vaccine status update (approx. 43 mins)
  • Third - from Town Administrator Jamie Hellen and Facilities Director Mike D’Angelo on the UVGI filters installation update through to the end of the public meeting (approx. 58 minutes)

The show notes contain links to the meeting agenda and to my notes. The meeting packet folder will hold the other documents released for the meeting (as we go to press, the Superintendent’s Report is not yet posted to the meeting folder)

Let’s listen to this segment of the School Committee meeting of Feb 23, 2021
