Iowa COVID-19 Tracker started this petition to Governor Kim Reynolds

Recent mandates issued by Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds for school reopening during a global pandemic will put school staff, students, families, and our community at risk. We the undersigned community members petition the ACSD School Board to do the following: 

(1) Delay in-person instruction for our schoolchildren until 14-day average positivity is below 0.5%.

(2) Allow for all families to choose 100% online instruction so that kids, families, educators, and district staff can stay safe throughout the duration of the pandemic. 

(3) Empower the school district and restore local control, the hallmark of how our state is governed. 

(4) Suspend all in-person standardized testing (ISASP, DLM, ELPA21) for the duration of the pandemic.

(5) Provide proper funding to educators and our school district for PPE, sanitizing agents, etc. in the event that Ames has achieved 0.5% 14-day positivity and can begin in-person instruction safely.
