Brighton schools vote delayed due to Zoom meeting problems

Brighton Area Schools Board of Education was expected to vote Monday night on a plan to send students back to school in person but the meeting was delayed by technical issues. 

While the school board gathered in person without an audience present, the public was given options for viewing the meeting remotely. They could choose to watch a live stream through Google Meet, join a Zoom video conference call, or call a phone number to listen in.

After about a half hour of audio and other technical problems, the school board voted to adjourn and reschedule the meeting to 6 p.m. Tuesday. 

There were more than 490 people on the Zoom call when the meeting was adjourned. 

Several people on the meeting did not mute themselves, causing chaotic audio. People also had trouble hearing board members.
