This session of the radio show shares the Franklin, MA School Committee meeting held on Tuesday, May 9, 2023.

The meeting was conducted in a hybrid format: all of the School Committee members, school district personnel along with some of the public in the Council Chambers. Some members of the public participated via Zoom conference bridge.

Quick recap:

  • The School Committee met on Tuesday night at their regular meeting. They heard an update from the Keller Elementary School, an update on the District Improvement Plan, and voted 6-1 on an amendment to the original motion, to effectively do nothing for redistricting. 
  • The 6 votes all talked of the need for the master facility plan, but although that was included in the original proposal before them, the minor adjustment now was passed on in favor of doing nothing. 
  • The entered Executive Session and did return to approve a contract reached with ESP/LPN bargaining unit before closing out the full meeting
