This session of the radio show shares my first recorded conversation with Franklin School Superintendent Lucas Giguere. We had our conversation in person at a Central Office conference room in the Municipal Building on Thursday, November 17, 2022. 

At a high level our topics were:

  • 5 months in, how are you doing?
  • Student behavior, reaching out to parents & community for help
  • Vaping, substance use
  • Social media and critical conversations
  • Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) deep dive and overall program
  • Redistricting approach and process has started

The recording runs about 39 minutes
