Sara Turner started this petition to Deer Valley School Board and

Advocate for in-person learning options for families and educators who want to be in the classroom. Online accommodations have been made available for those who would like to utilize that option. We oppose lack of creative solutions to best fit the variety of viewpoints and needs in Arizona. Allow us to assess our individual needs and make choices accordingly.

Many are struggling to make decisions in regards to their children’s education due to the unknown. If the start date continues to be postponed then it would affect:

· Mental health (depression, isolation, suicide, managing unmet expectations)

· Lack of resources for children in need (disparity in education assistance received at home, lack of adult supervision, lack of mandatory reporters)

· Quality of education received (online school, unhealthy amounts of screen time)

· Work schedules (Income affects quality of life, also affects the overall economy of the state)

· School sports & extracurricular activities

· Prospects of homeschooling

· And the list goes on...

We can no longer sit and wait for things to improve, or pass. Unless we are lending our voices to what we believe to be the best course of action, things may continue to get worse. School-aged kids are struggling due to our silence; they want, and need, to be back in school. We want in-person learning as an option, so let’s advocate for Arizona education!
