Bozeman School Board members this week discussed a possible mask policy that would be tied to community and district transmission, with many members seeming to support a policy that would likely see the school year start with a universal mask requirement if COVID-19 transmission remains high.

While no vote was scheduled, almost 400 people tuned in to the virtual meeting on Monday, which saw two-and-a-half hours of public comment on the proposed mask policy from about 60 people.

The policy recommendation would allow the superintendent to remove or implement a mask requirement across grade bands, or elementary, middle and high school levels.
