Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Rochester School Board is returning to in-person meetings for the first time in over a year.

With over 80-percent of Olmsted County residents 16-years and older vaccinated and COVID-19 activity in the community evaporating, the School District today announced the decision to have the School Board begin meeting in person again at the Edison Building starting with the June 15th meeting.

The School District will take steps to continue allowing for social distancing and sanitizing supplies will be available for use between presentations. District staff who have been fully vaccinated will not be required to wear masks, but can if they wish. Everyone in attendance will be required to sign in and out of the meeting for tracking purposes if a COVID-19 case is detected.
