Governor Bill Lee signed Executive Order No. 60 on August 28, 2020. This Executive Order affects the meetings of governmental bodies through October 28th. The Office of the Comptroller of the Treasury issued a memorandum to Tennessee’s Director of Schools on September 1.
The memorandum says, in part, for meetings held on or after October 1, 2020, Executive Order No. 60 imposes new requirements for governing bodies that wish to continue to allow their members to participate in meetings by electronic means. A governing body seeking to conduct meetings electronically in accordance with the new provisions of the Executive Order must make a determination at the outset of the meeting, by vote or to otherwise, that conducting the meeting by electronic means is necessary to protect the public health, safety, and welfare of Tennesseans in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.
All meetings of the Washington County Board of Education subject to requirements of the Tennessee Open Meetings Act will be conducted electronically under the provisions of Executive Order No. 60 through its expiration on October 28th, 2020.
Through the framework of EPIC! we want to make a difference in the lives of our youth, faculty, staff, community, and school by coming together as one to put our students’ happiness, safety, and well-being as the #1 priority. Due to the quality of this initiative, the Tennessee School Board Association granted Washington County Schools an “Award of Excellence in Education Programs” in recognition of EPIC!
