To whom it may concern,

COVID-19 has affected everyone's lives, especially in student's learning. With the closures of school extending to the rest of the academic year, teachers and students are forced to use online tools to continue education. Education is very important to us students, however, the solution we have currently isn't reliable. Despite the effort of School Districts including the Long Beach Unified School District, many students are still struggling to connect to their online classes or simply do not have time to attend them. There are high school students are working that are essential workers. Some students are parents of essential workers that may have to take care of their younger siblings. Class meetings are often buggy due to a poor connection. 

Based on some of the struggles I've witnessed and what my fellow classmates had voiced, I think it would be best to pass a law that gives students an automatic pass in all classes for the 2019-2020 school year. Students should also be given the option to calculate their current grades into their report card IF they so wish. This year has been proven to be challenging for not just the students, but to the teachers, the administrators, and other staff members of school all around California and the United States. Doing this initiative will not only relieve stress for students but for staff as well. Learning may continue, but no student should fail given the impact of our current situation. I hope whoever may receive this petition to act upon it and grant us an automatic pass.

In short, students should not have to worry about their classes during a pandemic. Many students may not have the proper equipment to participate in online classes despite districts trying to give out their own equipment to do so. Some students may be essential workers or may have to provide help to other people during this time. To add on, online classes may be unreliable, especially with the heavy demand and online traffic of many other organizations trying to use online platforms as well. Given the circumstances, we should be granted an automatic pass from all of our classes for the 2019-2020 academic year. The learning that we are partaking in is simply unreliable and difficult for students.
