Freer, Mathis, and San Diego ISD have resolved to withdraw the policy requiring masks in order to comply with Governor Abbott’s executive order on Mask’s obligations.
Corpus Christi, Texas — Editor’s NoteThe video accompanying this story was aired in 3News First Edition prior to announcements from school districts in other regions.
Several school districts around the coastal bend will discuss withdrawing or withdrawing the dress code policy that requires masking obligations and face coverings.
The Texas Attorney General’s Office is seeking a proceeding against the district against Governor Abbott’s executive order on Mask’s obligations and hopes that the local school district will reassess its policy.
This topic was added as an urgent agenda at the Freer Independent School District Board of Directors meeting on Monday night. According to the district’s Facebook page, they added this item to the agenda in light of “recent legislation and information the Freer ISD has received from Attorney General Paxton.”
Freer ISD board members voted in favor of withdrawing the district’s mask mandate, but said they would continue to encourage masks.
The Mattis Independent School District also voted on Monday night’s board of directors and decided to revoke Mask’s obligations.
The San Diego Independent School District has also decided to withdraw the dress code policy that requires students to wear masks. They went to social media on Tuesday morning and said they had reached a decision to “comply with Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-38.” They also continue to encourage students and staff to wear masks because the number of positive cases seen in the last 10 days has decreased. “Thank you for your support and parents.”
The Beeville Independent School District also added action items to the board on Tuesday to discuss and possibly take action on their own mask mandates.
Some school districts in Coastal Bend are now opposed to the governor’s orders, including independent school districts in Brooks County, Corpus Christi, Kingsville, Mathis, San Diego, Santa Gertrudis, and West Oso. According to the Attorney General’s website, these districts should have received a letter stating that they are not compliant.
