RESOLUTION TO EXPRESS THE OPPOSITION OF THE BOARD TO VACCINE MANDATES
WHEREAS, since March 2020 the Board of Education of the New Miami Local School District (“Board”) has worked with the community, staff, and students to address the risks of COVID-19 through periods of closure and remote learning, quarantines, contact tracing, social distancing, masking and facilitating access to vaccinations for those who choose to be vaccinated; and
WHEREAS, through these actions, and the many private and personal decisions of those in the school and community, the impact of COVID-19 on the lives and education of New Miami students have been significantly reduced; and
WHEREAS, the Board continues to share timely and accurate information with the community, staff, and students regarding the risks of COVID-19 and steps that can be taken to mitigate those risks including masking and vaccination; and
WHEREAS, the response to COVID-19 has evolved with the scientific understanding and medical advancements in addressing the risks. At this time individuals ages 5 and older have access to vaccination; and
WHEREAS, the Board believes that the decision whether to receive the vaccination against COVID-19 in the current circumstances should be a personal decision.
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board expresses its opposition to a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for its employees and students in the current circumstances. Other mitigation measures, such as those set forth in Board Policies 8450 and 8450.01, have proven to be effective to control the spread of the existing variants of COVID-19 within the school setting at this time.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Board continues to recognize that COVID-19 is a serious virus that can have devastating impacts on vulnerable individuals. Because of this the Board will continue to monitor COVID-19 and any future variants that may arise. In accordance with Board Policies 8450 and 8450.01 as well as federal, state, and local requirements, the Board will continue to take reasonable steps to mitigate spread of COVID-19 within the school setting. The Board’s mitigation plan will be responsive to evolving medical and scientific guidance. Community, staff, and students are encouraged to seek the advice of their medical providers on questions of vaccination and other medical decisions regarding COVID-19.
It is found and determined that all formal actions of this Board concerning or related to the adoption of this Resolution were adopted in an open meeting of this Board, and all deliberations of this Board and any of its committees that resulted in such formal actions were adopted in meetings open to the public, in compliance with all applicable requirements of the Ohio Revised Code.
