Nathan Oltmanns started this petition to Galt Joint Union Elementary School District and

As we look to reopen schools safely, this petition is to the GJUSD and its governing Board Members regarding the A.M/P.M hybrid model. This is a petition for the GJUSD and their Board members to hold off on reopening schools until there is a plan in place that does not affect our students academically.  According to the board meeting public comments, 77 percent of teachers believe that waiting to reopen schools is what is best for our students.  I urge you to listen to our professionals that are in the trenches daily dealing with our students. Not only did teachers disagree with the opening plan, plenty of parents have discussed their displeasures with the plan due to the decrease of instructional minutes their child will receive  daily. I urge you to reevaluate the plan and listen to the majority. Find a better plan the meets the majority of parents wants and effects our students the least amount, but most importantly listen to the professionals who know what it takes to give our children a good education.  It can be done with the right growth mindset. This may not be a one size fit model, which means all schools do not have to be on the same schedule. Flexibility within schools should be looked at.   It is extremely important to get our children back to school, but not at the cost of their health and quality of their education.  I’m hoping the support of the petition with have an effect on your decision as we return safely to school.
