The Volusia County School Board has canceled the emergency meeting scheduled for Thursday, September 9, where board members planned to discuss the mandatory Face Covering Policy 503. The district is awaiting a court ruling from the 1st District Court of Appeals regarding Governor DeSantis' Mask Mandate Ban in schools.
The current policy requires all K – 12 students and adults to wear a face mask or covering while inside all Volusia County Schools and facilities and remains in effect until October 15. This week, September 7 – 10, has been used as a grace period for families to obtain a note from a medical professional requesting a medical exemption.
School Board members will revisit the discussion on the policy at intervening school board meetings.
The next regularly scheduled board meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 14, at the DeLand Administrative Complex, off N. Clara Avenue, in DeLand. The meeting will be open to the public. The public can watch the meeting by going to the district website vcsedu.org
