The Columbia School Board met Tuesday to discuss whether to reopen schools on schedule or delay in-person classes until after Labor Day. The board listened to medical experts who spoke and offered suggestions for reopening procedures.

Meanwhile, two groups of protesters held silent and peaceful protests outside the meeting. Many of the protestors were teachers. One group, dressed in green, was in favor of in-person classes; the other group, who wore red, was against in-person classes.
