Date to be determined for Red Deer school board to consider vaccination policy

Red Deer Public Schools to look at draft policy

Red Deer Public Schools has now decided to hold a special meeting to consider a draft policy regarding temporary vaccination or rapid tests for COVID-19 for staff.

The policy draft was originally scheduled to go before the school board at its regular meeting on Nov. 10, but it has now been deferred to a special meeting, date to be determined, to ensure there is enough time to look at the draft policy in depth.

“We will be sure to communicate in advance when the policy will be brought back to the board of trustees for review and a decision. Any decisions will be made in a public meeting,” said a statement from Red Deer Public Schools.

On Oct. 28, the school board approved a motion for the superintendent to develop a temporary board policy regarding the requirement of division staff to provide proof of full vaccination for COVID-19, or proof of a negative rapid test every 72 hours for COVID-19.
