The Polk County School Board meeting scheduled for Tuesday, June 30, has been postponed until a later date.
The meeting was called for the purpose of discussing the upcoming superintendent search and allowing the public to have input.
The meeting was structured to comply with CDC guidance, including allowing board members to participate virtually, limiting the capacity of rooms, requiring social distancing, making masks available to attendees, and prohibiting attendance by individuals who have been exposed, tested positive, or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19.
However, Health Department concerns about widespread transmission in Polk County, transmission among younger groups, and transmission by individuals without symptoms resulted in a decision to postpone the meeting until a later date to be determined.
We will provide an update once more information is available.
