5. ACTION ITEMS
6. Consideration and/or Action to determine if there is a change/pivot from the July 27, 2020 decision related to the selected "HYBRID Learning Environment" beginning September 1, 2020
Description:  The "Learning Environments" are defined as three options:
A. IN-PERSON Learning Environment 
B. AT-HOME/DISTANCE Learning Environment
C. HYBRID Learning Environment
Link to the Wildcat Roadmap to Reentry
Recommended Action: Determine if we need to pivot/shift the "Learning Environment" beginning September 1, 2020.
7. Consideration and/or Action to approve Mask requirement
Description:  We will try to educate students about the need to wear masks but if/when we have previously provided two "warnings" to those who become non-compliant, they will be removed from the in-school learning environment and placed into our Virtual/e-School program.  Our mask requirement is firm and intentional and therefore, any purposeful non-compliance and/or repeat refusal to follow this expectation will result in placement into the virtual/e-School program. Individuals with health conditions or disabilities that would prevent them from wearing of a face-covering safely are exempt from this requirement. Breathing concerns, mask breaks, and medical reasoning will be part of this plan. Link to Governor Ever's Emergency Order #1.
Recommended Action: Approve Mask requirement.
