As FCPS parents our right to decide what was best for our family's schooling and education was taken away from us by Dr. Brabrand and the Fairfax County School Board late July.  Instead the plan is for full virtual of approx 2.5-3 hr of synchronous instruction 4 days a week for an undetermined length of time for everyone. Now the school board has released their example schedules and that 2.5 hours is much longer and now expands the entire work day instead of a consolidated block of instruction.  The learning blocks not including lunch/break are over 4 hr. Another hour if you require special instruction modules.

We all want our children and teachers to be safe, but now their plan further jeopardizes our families' wellbeing and financial livelihood. Expecting children and parents to do 6+ hours of schooling in front of a computer per day is detrimental! The claim is to mimic normalcy...nothing about this plan is normal! Children aren't meant to sit in front of a computer all day! Parents can't work from home (or outside of home) and ensure their child is receiving an education if it requires a full day in front of a screen. 

FCPS has decided the best option for the foreseeable future is 2.5-3 hr of synchronous virtual instruction per day.  Let's demand they stick to that!  Sign this petition demanding that instruction take place in a consolidated block in the morning, and let us as parents decide HOW we spend the rest of our day!  Parents need to work and children need to be physically active and engaged in non screen activities.  Neither of these things are possible with the proposed virtual schedules. 

Just say NO to spreading virtual instruction across the entire day!  Say YES to maintaining control of our and ourchildren's lives!
