Alice Brock-Utne started this petition to Lafayette School Board

Dear LAFSD Board,

We want you to take immediate action on the following:

Mandate the superintendent provide a plan for 5 day a week reopening and a timeline for that plan.

Any obstacles to getting the plan done or enacting the plan should be published, community involvement/support should be invited through normal district and board channels, so that the full power of Lafayette is brought to bear to do the best for our children.

As we have expressed in multiple emails and conversations with your members this week, we are working very hard to encourage healthy and respectful dialogue between our community and the district with a singular objective of safely opening schools 5 days a week for in person instruction. While parents have had opportunities for public comment at every board meeting, we are hearing sentiment that they haven't been heard. Opening for 5 day a week in person instruction is far too important to be left for the public comment portion of the board meeting and we would like it added to the agenda.

The education code mandates schools open in person to "the greatest extent possible".  Several Bay Area schools are now opening 5 days a week on the basis of recent data showing the safety of doing so. They have employed creative solutions to accomplish this.  Can you answer why this is not possible in Lafayette? 

Sincerely,
Lafayette Residents For In Person Education
