COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
Columbia's Board of Education is scheduled to vote on the return to in-person learning Monday night.
Columbia Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Peter Stiepleman joined ABC 17 News This Morning ahead of the planned vote.
According to the meeting agenda, the board will decide whether to affirm or modify plans to return to in-person learning Jan. 19.
As of Friday, the districts 14-day COVID-19 case rate per 10,000 people living in district boundaries was 79.8. Any rate at or above 50 indicates a need for all-virtual learning.
The board will also take up a resolution that would support the priority designation of school personnel for vaccination. The resolution would also encourage Missouri's Department of Health and Senior Services to define "school personnel" as all employees in a school district.
Monday's meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Aslin Administration Building.
