By MyFm's Rick Michaels - The Franklin School Committee will meet tonight and further discuss the districts’ Preliminary Re-opening plans for the upcoming school year. The Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jeff Riley says school districts should hold off on announcing any final decisions about re-opening until early next month, in order to take into account updated information on financial resources and possible changes in COVID-19 transmission rates. Franklin School officials are considering a couple of options for students, should hybrid instruction be needed one plan would have 50 percent of students alternating each week, one week of in person instruction and one week of remote learning. The other plan would have the kids alternating going to school for three days/one week and two days/for the second week. Franklin School officials are continuing to seek input, such as reflections on remote learning which is expected to be more robust than what students experienced during the Spring. All School Districts will need to submit preliminary re-opening plans to the State, by the end of the week.
