BCSD Back to School Full Time started this petition to Ball-Chatham School District and

Ball-Chatham students are currently learning remotely, or participating in a hybrid model. This hybrid model currently only offers 3 hours a day, 4 days a week for in-person instruction. The Ball-Chatham School District (BCSD) has been on this current plan since Fall of 2020. Per last Ball-Chatham School Board meeting on February 23rd, 2021, the Administration has said they will produce a new plan for full time class but not until May 15th, 2021.  Our students and teachers have been left behind due to an administrative shortfall of not coming up with an updated plan to get our children in full time sooner.

Distance learning is a form of instruction; it is not school. A Child's education goes beyond academic subjects and extends to a wide variety of emotional, social and developmental skills that can only be learned in-person. Keeping kids out of schools. Constitutes a substantial violation of their constitutional rights.

This is an opportunity for all stakeholders to add their name in support of a plan to return full time ASAP for Ball-Chatham students.

Restore classroom full time without delay :  
— This would be a new plan, allowing students that choose in-person learning more time at school.
— Other schools within the IDPH established Heath Region 3 offer five-day learning now, and in some instances full-time or near full-time, with safe outcomes. Other districts around the state offer full-time or near full-time five-day learning now, with safe outcomes.
— The barrier is administrative, as well as external (ie: state regulations).
— It is up to the administration too explore options. This group recommends spatial studies of the buildings, modeling based on other districts, consultations with other school district administrators, and consultations with workplace/classroom safety experts.

OUR CHILDRENS EDUCATION IS ESSENTIAL!
