Students started this petition to Marin Academy

Due to COVID-19, Marin Academy has adjusted its schedule and turned to online learning. The administration has done a great job transitioning to this new way of life, and Students at MA are extremely fortunate and grateful for the opportunity to continue their high-quality classes in a virtual format; However, at the same time, the amount of work that is expected from students on a daily basis is very difficult to manage. From various conversations, I have discovered that many hardworking students haven't found enough time to exercise, spend time with family, or engage in other extracurricular activities due to their daily workload. Students are not only spending around 6 hours a day engaging in classes on their devices but they are also spending an additional 2-5 hours doing homework after school. Without cutting corners, it is nearly impossible for students to spend meaningful amounts of time on their interests and passions while also garnering success in their classes. This petition is by no means about getting students off the hook when it comes to completing homework, rather it is meant to communicate with the MA administration that the current schedule and workload is making it difficult for students to live balanced and healthy lifestyles.
