It will take action, solid and unrelenting confrontational action, at the local level – to include ousting the leftist propagandists, before this insufferable control will end. Kudos to the parents who refused to back-down; now they need to remove these pontificating board members. “Whatever It Takes!”
These people have no idea who they work for. In their elitist mindset they are operating above the citizens of their district. This type of leftist outlook must be removed from every school board in every district everywhere. It will take engagement by every patriotic parent, but it needs to happen with a sense of urgency.
Citizen video below that shows what came next…
The district released a statement from Superintendent Dr. Scott A. Menzel:
ARIZONA – The Scottsdale Unified School District Governing Board and I are disappointed that this evening’s regularly scheduled meeting had to be recessed because of non-compliance with district policy that visitors wear face masks at all times while on all district property. After 1) explaining the policy to the audience, which is the district’s authority to establish, 2) asking that attendees put on masks in order for the meeting to begin and 3) setting up an overflow room where those who did not wish to comply could watch the meeting virtually, the Board voted to recess the meeting until a future time.
We understand that there are differing opinions on the need to wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We fall on the side of doing what is within our authority to do in order to protect the safety and well-being of our students and staff. The district’s decision to maintain the mask policy through the end of the school year (May 27) was previously announced, as has the plan to make masks optional next fall. Most of our students are either not eligible or have not been vaccinated, and by following a careful mitigation strategy devised in concert with local, state and federal health agency guidelines and recommendations, we have been successful in preventing our schools from becoming COVID breeding grounds. As a result, we have been able to offer in-person learning opportunities to those students wanting and needing it since last fall. (read more)
