This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Franklin Public Schools Superintendent Sara Ahern. We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talk about 

  •  Midyear status, on first snow day
  • Her personal status
  • Much to do
  • Working with new School Committee
  • FY 2022 Budget adjustment
  • Administrative searches underway
  • Capital budget being readied
  • FY 2023 budget in preparation
  • Davis Thayer surplus decision remains along with the master facility plan work ahead of them

The recording runs about 21 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Sara
