Franklin To Begin Hybrid Learning
  

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - The Franklin School Committee heard from the Superintendent of Schools Tuesday night as all students have begun learning in the new school year remotely and that will begin to change next week. Superintendent Sara Ahearn says hybrid planning has been a challenge especially at the elementary level and everyone is working hard to get students back into the classrooms. Ahearn says hybrid learning begins on Thursday October 1st for Kindergarten and first grade students.  Then, if all goes well, hybrid learning will expand for elementary and middle school students on October 19th and October 26th ending with grades 9-12 returning on November 19th . Superintendent Ahearn told the School Committee members the new Chromebooks ordered will be coming in earlier than expected. The first installment of Chromebooks will arrive by the end of next week and as far as she knows no student is without a Chromebook at this time. Internet access is another concern with remote learning and Ahearn says there about 7.5 percent of households in Franklin without internet access and they’re working to find out how many students may be impacted.
