During the meeting, SCS Board Member Michelle McKissack conducted an experiment with the safety device.
“I’m wearing a face shield that Shelby County Schools is considering for students to wear,” McKissack said, “I thought it would be appropriate tonight to see what it feels like for the duration of this hour.”
After the meeting McKissack told WMC Actions News 5 the face shield was “very comfortable.”It remains unclear how the school will enforce this practice if it becomes mandatory.
Parents are being asked to weigh in on the proposal and participate in a survey.
