The Adair County Board of Education is holding a special called meeting on Saturday at 6 p.m. and including an opportunity for public comment on the agenda.
The board discussed a mask mandate from the Kentucky Department of Education that is no longer in effect during a meeting Thursday night and is expected to continue the discussion at the Saturday meeting. In a notice concerning the public meeting, it states that they hope the board will reach a consensus that will move the district forward for the 2021/22 school year.
At Thursday’s meeting, two members of the board voted to continue with a mask mandate but the motion failed 3-2. The mandate remains in effect as the board discusses its options. Superintendent Pam Stephens said if the board votes to change policy it will not take effect until students return following fall break on Monday, Oct. 11.
The meeting will be held at the boardroom on the school campus at 1204 Greensburg St.
