Artesia Emergency School Board Meeting- Lawsuits over COVID-19 rules in NM schools continues

The Artesia Public School Board met Monday August 3rd at 5:30 pm in an emergency session. The meeting began after an executive session. After the executive session, the school board decided to join the Gallup-McKinny lawsuit in progress against the State of New Mexico Public Education Department. School boards around the state seek to overturn the executive overreach they see in the Public Education Department. Jessica Pollard writes in the Santa Fe New Mexican that, “the lawsuit, which was filed in October, lists 18 school boards as plaintiffs — including the board of Gallup-McKinley County Schools. It alleges the state’s public education secretary overstepped his authority in placing requirements on which students could return to in-person learning and when employees should get tested for COVID-19, among other restrictions.”
