Paul Sandy started this petition to avondale school district and

The Avondale Board of Education is voting on Monday, May 4th whether or not to close Avondale Academy and replace it with DCI, a “blended” school that would shift teaching online. Students, parents, and educators just found out about this, and are devastated. We stand united to demand that the Board vote NO on the proposal to replace teachers with fully virtual instruction. 

Avondale Academy is an alternative public high school in the Avondale School District that serves approximately 113 students from Pontiac, Auburn Hills, and Rochester Hills, Michigan. It is intended for students who have either struggled to succeed in a mainstream high school or for students who want a smaller school setting with more social-emotional support and a community style education approach. 

Avondale Academy currently provides students with a positive educational experience through social-emotional supports to students, mentor groups that reinforce community norms, creativity through art and music endeavors, a mental health peer-to-peer group, project-based learning, and reading and math intervention. All of those things are made possible with teachers.

During this pandemic, many of us are clinging on to the idea of returning to normal. Students, families, and educators at Avondale Academy deserve that too.

By signing this petition, you are demanding that the Avondale School District Board of Education vote NO on the proposal to replace teachers with fully virtual instruction.
