FM #1036 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 1036 in the series.
The Franklin (MA) School Committee met on Tuesday, August 8, 2023 as scheduled. Five members were present (2 absent). The 5 provided quorum to enable official business. They did break for an Executive Session, and returned to open meeting to authorize a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the cafeteria workers “as discussed" (in the executive session) before closing the session.
Let’s listen to the School Committee meeting of August 8. The time they left the room for their Executive Session was shortened for airplay and replaced by a brief audio bit. The total meeting audio runs about 49 minutes.
