The special meeting will be at 6 p.m. in the board room at the district office, 140 S. Gilbert Road, Gilbert. The meeting also will be livestreamed on the district’s YouTube channel.
The meeting was scheduled after Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order April 18 that allowed schools to lift face mask restrictions. However, the order does not require districts to do so.
The mask policy is the only item for discussion on the agenda at the special meeting, but there will be a public comment period before the board acts.
After Ducey’s order, the district emailed all families that existing policy requiring face coverings while on GPS campuses would remain in place until further notice.
