8/16/21 Special Meeting
Special Meeting Notes
Action Item: Online Learning
The school board voted 6-0 to approve staffing for the K-5 online learning program. Funding for the online staffing, which is estimated at $250,000, will come from the ESSER II federal COVID-19 funds. The program will be offered under a state provisioning license designed to serve students not yet eligible for vaccination. A total of 139 students are currently registered for online learning.
At the end of the meeting, Board Chair Petri announced that the decision on a recommendation to require indoor masking for preK-8 will be made at the August 26 board meeting instead of during a special meeting on August 19. Two board members were not able to attend the work session on August 19 and the board wanted all members present for this important vote.
