FM #785 - School Committee Mtg - 04/26/22

Published on: 29th April, 2022

This session of the radio show shares the regular School Committee meeting held Tuesday, April 26, 2022. 

Quick Recap:

  • Given the new agenda format, and that the Superintendent deliberation discussion had been conducted in the special meeting held prior to the regular session, the meeting was short and to the point.
  • Superintendent Ahern provided multiple updates (superintendent’s report not yet posted to packet folder as this is published)
  • Recognition of FHS students for project placements at regional science fair. A future consideration would be to conduct a science fair at FHS (which apparently has not been done before). The two projects showcased were awesome.
  • The School Committee entered executive session to continue work on their contract negotiations. 

The meeting opened at 7 PM and ran approx. 43 minutes.
