Denver school board member: If students meet in person, the board should too

Chalkbeat Colorado: A Denver school board member is calling for his colleagues to resume in-person board meetings now that Denver students are gradually returning to classrooms.

Board member Tay Anderson said it seems hypocritical for the seven-member school board to continue to meet on Zoom while asking teachers and students to return to classrooms. Starting Monday, he said he plans to connect to the board’s Zoom meetings from a conference room at Denver Public Schools’ headquarters, where meetings were held before COVID-19.

It was not immediately clear Monday if the board would change its practice. The board was scheduled to meet virtually for a work session Monday afternoon.
