Sandy Sandals started this petition to palm beach county school district

We, the concerned parents, teachers, and guardians of Palm Beach County students, petition the Palm Beach County School District to reopen schools this Fall, giving parents and students the choice whether to return to the classroom or continue with virtual learning.

Many counties across Florida are giving families this choice. Every family has unique circumstances, including having working parents, students with IEPs or 504 plans, the need for in-school therapy, family members with health issues, mental health concerns, the need for a safe environment, and different learning styles. Please reopen schools and give us the choice, so every child has the opportunity to succeed and thrive.

Article IX of Florida's Constitution states that Florida needs
to provide adequate education for ALL.
So...If a child has disabilities, if parents work, if online school does not work for some children, if children are left unattended with online schooling, if children are falling through the cracks with online schooling, etc., HOW IS IT ABIDING BY OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO PROVIDE “ADEQUATE” EDUCATION FOR ALL CHILDREN if they take away our choice???

ARTICLE IX: SECTION 1. Public education:
(a) The education of children is a fundamental value of the people of the State of Florida. It is, therefore, a paramount duty of the state to make adequate provision for the education of all children residing within its borders. Adequate provision shall be made by law for a uniform, efficient, safe, secure, and high quality system of free public schools that allows students to obtain a high quality education and for the establishment, maintenance, and operation of institutions of higher learning and other public education programs that the needs of the people may require….

OUR CHILDREN, OUR CHOICE
