Brevard County School Board votes to require masks for in-school attendance

Published on

In a split decision, the Brevard County School Board voted yesterday to make face coverings in their brick and mortar school mandatory for everyone.

Board members Misty Belford, Cheryl McDougall and Matt Susin voted in favor of the proposal, with Katie Campbell and Tina Descovich opposed.

“I feel like we all agree that schools are important for our kids and our families for a lot of different reasons,” Belford said. “If we truly believe that way, I think we need to do whatever we can to minimize the likelihood of having to close our schools again.”

Face coverings will now be part of the student dress code and code of conduct, meaning students can face discipline for repeated violations, including involuntary placement in eLearning.
