Webb Cummings started this petition to Durham Public Schools Durham Public Schools

In late 2020, Ms. Huber made the decision based on the knowledge she had at that time to accompany her husband to Denmark for their work. Then, the Durham Public Schools Board of Education made the decision that we would not be returning to in-person learning. After contemplation by the state government, the Board of Education reversed their decision and told everyone that we would be returning to school and that teachers who did not have a medical exemption and would not return to in-person learning would have to resign.

The school board did not consult with the teachers, staff, or students who work with Ms. Huber or even consider her extenuating circumstances before demanding that she resign. To make such a drastic staffing change so close to the end of an already hectic school year is going to be difficult for Ms. Huber and everyone else.

Since Ms. Huber is in Denmark and physically cannot get back to the United States, we are asking the School Board to reconsider their decision in this particular situation. Asking Ms. Huber to resign is a big blow for all of her past, present, and future students.

We are asking the school board to make an exception to their policy for Ms. Huber due to her extenuating circumstances. She is an incredibly valuable member of the team of teachers and students at Jordan and we would not be who we are without her. By requiring her to resign, the Board of Education is uprooting the performing arts programs at Jordan. We compel the Board of Education to rescind Ms. Huber's resignation and allow her to remain the Jordan Chorus and Musical Theatre teacher at her current salary.
