Class of 2021 started this petition to school district of mystery lake

The graduating class of 2021 urges the School District of Mystery Lake and Minister of Education to look into this matter and cancel all examinations to be held this month as students are already under a lot of stress and pressure due to the unfortunate times and circumstances that covid-19 has brought upon us all. Taking the examinations could add too much pressure and could lead us all into making bad decisions if we don't perform well. Therefore, many other school divisions have canceled their grade 12 examinations to reflect the needs of their students whom have received very little guidance. While it's understood that the district wants to give this year as much normalcy as possible it's important to remember how curriculums were rushed and students have not learnt enough to confidently do well on the examinations.  Comparing the fall 2019 school term and the fall 2020 school term math achievements of students in 2020 was about 5 to 10 percentile points lower compared to same grade students the prior year. We feel it is in our best interest presently and for our future to not do the examinations so poorly prepared.
