Minneapolis Public Schools Board of Education will consider a resolution that would require all staff to be vaccinated.

The resolution would require all employees, contractors, volunteers and partners with direct student contact to provide confirmation that they've gotten the COVID-19 vaccine. 

It would also allow an exemption to the vaccination requirement for anyone who submits to regular COVID-19 testing. 

The Board of Education will take action on the resolution during its meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 14. If the board approves the resolution, the requirement would go into effect no later than Oct. 15. 

Bring Me The News has reached out to Minneapolis Public Schools for comment.

If the resolution gets approved, Minneapolis Public Schools would be the latest to require staff to be vaccinated

Last week, the St. Paul Public Schools Board of Education unanimously passed a resolution to require staff to "acknowledge" they're fully vaccinated or submit to weekly testing.

Red Lake School District (ISD No. 38) and Intermediate District 287 in Hennepin County also require proof of vaccination or regular testing. 

Education Minnesota, the state's teachers union, supports local district vaccine policies for teachers and staff with the goal of persuading all adults in schools to get vaccinated.
