Craig Clawson started this petition to Gahanna Jefferson Public School District and

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, parents, teachers, students, and the community have supported the herculean efforts of the Gahanna-Jefferson Public School District in reacting to the public health crisis affecting our community.

However, despite having all summer and most of the first quarter to generate a reasonable and accommodating back to school plan, the administration has ignored the suggestions of the teachers, kept details from parents and students, and has angered the Union. Consequently, during an already stressful time for everyone the administration's unwillingness to be a flexible education partner has driven our teachers to consider a strike. 

This would not be considered by any reasonable mind as good leadership. Our teachers know and understand their craft. They know and understand their students. Proper leadership during this time would be to support and bolster the teachers, listening to their input for the safety, equity, and education of Gahanna's students. 

While it is true that this is not the most ideal time for Superintendent Barrett to step aside, we, the undersigned, do not believe that he is equipped to manage this crisis and feel it is best for him and the Gahanna school system to part ways.
