East Haven Education Association started this petition to East Haven Board of Education

We the undersigned teachers,parents, families and community of the East Haven public schools object to the Board of Education’s school re-opening plan. A full re-opening unnecessarily puts the health of all our teachers and students at risk, especially high-risk teachers who need accommodations. There’s no way to guarantee the kids will socially distance or keep their masks on. Instead of using an outside company, Edgenuity, to deliver instruction to students learning remotely, it just makes sense to use high risk teachers who are familiar with the curriculum and students. All students deserve to be taught by certified teachers who can provide individualized learning, including students who are learning remotely. East Haven is one of very few districts in the state to have a full reopening. The buildings aren’t ready, we aren’t fully prepared, and teacher anxiety is through the roof – over 75% of teachers are very concerned about returning to school. It is paramount to protect one another, our families, our students and the community. Please reconsider the reopening plan.
