Published on: 16th November, 2022

This session of the radio show shares the Franklin Public Schools Redistricting Advisory Committee Kick off Meeting held in the FHS Media Center on Tuesday, November 15, 2022. Some members participated remotely.   

Given this was a working session, the major whole group sections of the meeting audio is what is shared here. There are breaks in the audio when 

  • The members at each table introduced themselves
  • Time to read the handout before the breakout discussion was provided
  • The breakout discussion was held at each table

The breaks are indicated by a few seconds of music then the group discussion resumes

The edit meeting audio recording runs about 55 minutes. Let’s listen to Redistricting Advisory Committee Kick off Meeting
