The Waunakee school board could be reconsidering its decision for fall instruction Monday night, following a request from one of the board members who had voted to remain virtual.

The district released today its agenda for the Aug. 3 meeting, which was to focus on co-curriculars.

Included in the agenda is an item titled “Request by a School Board Member for Reconsideration of the School Board’s Decision from 7-27-20 Regarding the Educational Model for Returning to School in the Fall of 2020.”

According to its description, the board member requesting that reconsideration voted in favor of an enhanced remote-learning option during the July 27 school-board meeting.

The board member’s name has not been released.

“A member of the School Board who voted ‘Yes’ on 7-27-20 for the Enhanced Remote Learning model for reopening school in the fall, has requested that an agenda item be created so they can put forth a motion for reconsideration of the school reopening plan decision,” the agenda states.

The motion to start the 2020-21 school year in a virtual format passed by a 4-3 vote.

Were any of the board members who voted in favor of the original motion to change their vote, the education model for first semester could change to a hybrid or in-person format.

“If a motion for reconsideration is put forth and is approved by the Board, then a subsequent motion can be put forth and voted upon for the Fall 2020 School Reopening Plan,” the agenda states.
