Abi Goerges started this petition to Herron High School

     Hello, I’m Abigail Goerges and I’m asking you to help me create Herron more accessible. For over a year now I have been trying to get a temporary ramp placed on the other side of the Russell building. The resource and guidance department have been trying to help but it has not been enough. This is where I need your help. 
     According to the Historical Preservation society, the aesthetics of a building is more important than the people inside. Not only does this effect students in wheelchairs, but able bodied students as well. All of the students are expected to enter through one door and exit through another to improve the flow of traffic. Because the exit door does not have a ramp, students in wheelchairs are unable to do that and have to go against traffic. This is very stressful as the risk of accidentally hurting someone increases greatly. This stress not only applies to the students in wheelchairs, but also the walking students who wouldn’t like their feet to be ran over. The school's solution to this is for students in wheelchairs to leave class early. Not only does this hinder their education, but also their social lives. They might have to miss important information that is said in the last few minutes of class while also not being able to converse with their peers while heading to the next class like most students. This is only a band-aid solution. 
     I use a wheelchair part time. But many days that I feel I need to use it I don’t to avoid the stress or having to leave class early. Students who can’t walk at all, don’t have that option. So please join me in this fight for equality within our school. 
Thank you for your support! Please share this in any way so this proposal gets the attention it deserves!
