Over 1,000 Baltimore Schools employees miss November deadline to get vaccinated
Back in town…
The November 1st deadline set by city officials to have Baltimore School employees must get vaccinated has passed and now a decision has to be made on what to do.
Even though more than 87% of employees have followed the mandate, which includes those who have applied for exemptions based on religious or medical reasons, there are still more than 1,000 city employees who remain un-vaccinated.
In a statement, head of the Public School Administrators and Supervisors Association, said: “For our district to lose 10% of the staff would be extremely crippling to us because we already have vacancies. To lose a cafeteria manager, a custodian, a teacher or administrator would be devastating to the child of Baltimore City Public Schools.
Vaccination numbers are expected to be updated by the end of this week.
