CAT President's Report:

Called to order at 6:30 p.m. Members present: Stubblefield, Nelson, McAllister, Gooden, Coleman, and Moore. Also present Financial Director Blake and Superintendent Rice.

Long discussion of whether to continue hybrid attendance on alternate days, or to have said students come four days a week.

It was decided that beginning September 15, 2020, all hybrid students will attend school Tuesday through Friday. Also, remote students may start attending if they so desire. They will not have to wait until the first quarter is over. Hopefully this will improve student attendance and also make sure that the students are doing their work.

The BOE voted to exit closed session at 8:05 p.m.
