The Coweta County Board of Education will hold a called meeting Tuesday for final adoption of the Coweta County School System’s 2020-2021 annual budget.

The meeting will be held at the Board of Education Office, 237 Jackson Street in Newnan, at 6:30 p.m.

The meeting also will be viewable live on YouTube at “Coweta County School Board Meeting - 06/29/20” beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Tentative adoption of the FY2021 budget was approved at a called meeting June 16, following two mandatory budget workshops.

Anyone who wants to attend Tuesday’s meeting in person should be aware of the following health and safety precautions:

• Audience, board member and staff seating has been rearranged to comply with social distancing, which will substantially limit public seating. Seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

• There will be body temperature screening of attendees prior to entrance into the building. Anyone with a body temperature of 100.3 degrees F or above will not be permitted to enter.

• All attendees will be required to wear a cloth face covering or mask while inside the Board of Education office and meeting room. Masks will not be provided to the general public because of the limited supply, so those attending should be prepared to bring their own masks.

• Social-distancing measures (remaining 6 feet from others, wearing protective masks, etc.) will be maintained throughout the meeting.
