Please be advised of the following ongoing COVID-19-related procedures that are in place for BESE meetings:

  • Claiborne Building management requires all visitors entering the facility to have their temperatures checked at the main southern entrance. Visitors must have a temperature less than 100.4° to proceed past the checkpoint.
  • Claiborne Building management requires face coverings upon entry and in all common areas of the building.
  • Social distancing practices will be observed, to include seating spacing in the Louisiana Purchase Room. BESE staff will monitor attendance in the meeting room, not to exceed 50 percent of capacity. In an effort to adhere to spacing and capacity limitations, it is possible that attendees may not be permitted to remain seated in the room for the entirety of meetings.
  • Individuals wishing to provide public comment related to an agenda item are encouraged to complete comment cards prior to the start of the corresponding meeting. BESE staff will collect individual contact information in addition to completed comment cards. In the event that the person wishing to comment is not present in the meeting room, staff will attempt to provide notification when their item is being considered.
