The Eanes ISD board of trustees is scheduled to meet May 11 for a special-called meeting at the district’s Central Administration Building.
Several discussion and action items will appear on the agenda involving a diversity, equity and inclusion report, budget updates and the district’s COVID-19 mask policy.
During the April 27 meeting, Superintendent Tom Leonard informed trustees they were scheduled to vote on EISD’s face covering requirement at the following board meeting.
If approved by the board, masks could be optional for all students, staff and visitors on campus by June 1, according to the agenda item.
Trustees are also set to canvass votes from the May 1 local election in which incumbents Jennifer Champagne and James Spradley were the unofficial winners.
Up for discussion is the diversity, equity and inclusion or DEI report, which will provide an overview of DEI work that took place throughout the 2020-21 school year.
EISD’s DEI consultant, Mark Gooden, will lead the presentation that will include districtwide survey results involving the perceived issue of race on campus on a suggested approach to address it, according to the agenda.
The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and will be livestreamed through Zoom. Trustees will enter into an executive session at the start of the meeting and will reconvene to an open session with the public at approximately 7 p.m.
An online copy of the agenda can be found on the district’s website.
