Approved Unanimously

B. Approve Revision to the SDMA COVID-19 Plan, Mask Optional Policy

Two motions were made. The one to remove the mask mandate for grade school students on Dec. 13 did not receive a second. The one proposed by Angie Skillings was to end the mask mandate immediately, and a second was obtained for that motion.. 4 yes, 5 no, nos from Riddle-Swanson, Stier, Schneider and Palmer. This left things somewhat in limbo and the current status would be that the mandate will end after students have an opportunity to be fully vaccinated, apparently determined by the District Administrator. 

The board then re-considered the first motion to end the mask mandate on Dec. 13, which was originally brought forward by Amy Riddle-Swanson and which did not receive a second. This motion was seconded this time and a vote was taken. This motion passed 5-4 with members Freeman, Moses, Hillman, and Skillings voting against..

C. Approve SDMA Solar Project

The solar project was approved unanimously.
