Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
From the Franklin School District website:
We will provide timely and continuous communication between the school district, parents and community organizations using current technologies, media outlets and printed correspondence. In order to accomplish this goal, we will:
- Find new ways to communicate with all sectors of our community (parents and residents without children in the district)
- Find ways in which we can engage the community in the activities and planning in our district
- Consider emerging ways in which we communicate with families (i.e. emergency notification system)
- Evaluate how parents use tools provided by the district (i.e. power school)
- Foster a welcoming environment in all our schools."
From the same website, rookie school board member Janet Evans is the only member to mention communications:
“In order for success to be realized, open communication between citizens, the Board, and the administration is essential.”
As usual the school district says one thing, then does the complete opposite, as the school board has decided to make the district’s communications specialist a part-time rather than a full-time position.
Gotta pay for that $875,000 fiber optic purchase somehow.
This is starting to look like the worst Franklin School Board in recent memory.
