Ryan Kossarian started this petition to El Camino Real Charter High School and

 A Spectre has been haunting society- the outbreak of an advanced virus. Just by looking at the streets, the stores, the amusement parks during a time like this, it really opens your eyes to how even a modern society has its problems. 

This "invisible enemy" has affected our daily school lives. Teachers cannot teach properly. Students cannot learn properly. Thus, grades cannot be given out properly. Answer me this: If a student cannot learn to that 100% capacity they usually are accommodated to, how can the grading system be on a 0-100% scale. The answer is it cannot. The saying goes that desperate times call for desperate measures and that is exactly what we are asking for.

The terms of my petition are of the following:

- Update the grading system for Spring 2020 semester to a pass/fail system, that of other schools like Harvard University

Many of the students' personal experience is hard during this time too. Social distancing and the Los Angeles stay at home order have caused mental hardships for students of all ages. We see in Saudi Arabia, students committing suicide because of the isolation. Please call 1-800-273-8255 if you are experiencing any hardships.

In the simplest terms, in the most convenient of definitions, please help the students and teachers of the system who are under hardships by revising your grading system for the Spring 2020 semester to a pass/fail system. 

The times we are going through are harsh. People are dying by the masses and we are short on medical supplies. Life and Society as we know it has been altered. Through the passing of this petition, written by we the students, you are acknowledging our presence in times of need and acknowledging all our hardships. May God Bless You and Your Family. Please Stay Safe.
