Kat Scott started this petition to CADDO PARISH SCHOOL BOARD and

I am a student attending C.E. Byrd High School and this year I have made the decision to do all of my school work online amid the Coronavirus Pandemic. As an all virtual student I have noticed some inconveniences and struggles with our new learning platform, Canvas. Almost all students who have attended Byrd have had some experience with Google Classroom but none with Canvas. I am aware that the decision made to use Canvas was for the students and the teachers' benefit but so far the cons outweigh the pros. For instance, Google Classroom is much simpler to maneuver than Canvas and most students and teachers at Byrd have had experience with Google Classroom which makes it easier for the majority. Another con is the layout of Canvas, my peers and I have noticed that the layout makes getting tasks done more complex than it would be on Google Classroom. I would like to solve this issue by reverting Caddo Parish Schools back to using Google Classroom instead of Canvas. I have discussed this issue with my peers and the majority agrees that Canvas is not an ideal learning platform and that Google Classroom would benefit us more. Everyone who has signed this petition and myself would much rather learn on Google Classroom than Canvas and we want this to change. We would like for the Caddo Parish School Board to consider this and to take action and let our teachers use Google Classroom, not Canvas.Without this change the school year will be much more difficult for my peers and I.
