K Clark started this petition to Duneland School Corporation

The Duneland School Corporation, located in Chesterton, Indiana (and surrounding towns), has instituted virtual learning days on Wednesdays during the 20-21 school year as part of the response to the Covid 19 pandemic.

Many in our community, including teachers, parents and students, would like to see virtual learning Wednesdays continue in the coming school year(s).  For many, these virtual days have become a welcome time for students and staff to catch up on school work, planning, projects, etc.

These mid-week virtual days also give maintenance staff time to thoroughly clean and maintain the schools without interrupting learning. From a financial perspective, it seems as though continuing virtual Wednesdays might also be a way for the school district to save money on overhead, bus expenses and more. Staff training and development could also be a focus on virtual Wednesdays, since teachers are not going live instruction on these days. 

Hopefully the school board and administration will consider input from the community on this issue as they plan for the future of Duneland Schools.
