Williamson Faculties WCS cancels mask mandate against authorized suggestions

The Williamson County Faculties Board of Education voted in favor of removing its district-wide mask mandate Monday at its November conference.

The 7-5 vote to eliminate the rule right away centered on low COVID-19 case counts throughout the district, nevertheless, was made against the suggestion of litigation counsel Lisa Carson and district superintendent Jason Golden, who both of those satisfied with the board prior to the Monday night assembly.

Board member Jay Galbreath manufactured the motion to clear away the requirement with “all due respect to [their] assistance,” which Dan Dollars then seconded. Board member Rick Wimberly, who ultimately voted ‘no’ on the movement, mentioned he planned to make a motion to keep the mask mandate, at which level Galbreath’s movement was presently on the table. 

New school board member Josh Brown was the sole commenter on the issue.
