APRIL MERACLE started this petition to East Greenbush Central School District Board of Education

EGCSD keep all K-5 students in school buildings on a full-time schedule, while middle and high school students will receive some combination of in-person and remote instruction (current model).  Giving families of elementary students the option of full-time in person or full remote.

This change will allow younger students the in-person instruction for foundational reading, writing, and math.  Virtual learning for elementary students leaves the majority struggling with virtual learning without the basic computer, reading, and writing skills.

In addition, families will be able to go back to work full time to financially support their families.  The burden of child care would be relieved for these families as well.

Per NYS Education Department "...education will need to consider if certain students will be prioritized for in-person instruction first or more frequently based on educational or other needs (e.g., early grades, students with disabilities, English language learners)..." http://www.nysed.gov/common/nysed/files/programs/reopening-schools/nys-p12-school-reopening-guidance.pdf

AAP states "The importance of in-person learning is well-documented, and there is already evidence of the negative impacts on children because of school closures in the spring of 2020." https://services.aap.org/en/pages/2019-novel-coronavirus-covid-19-infections/clinical-guidance/covid-19-planning-considerations-return-to-in-person-education-in-schools/?fbclid=IwAR3XXaRndNsWQX2jwgJBaRN5GCL1XtWjSJ3tvapigEhBI-jFPsjOSfyrgEU
