Gabi Palavicino started this petition to Carlsbad Unified School District Board of Trustees

As school has been transitioning in the Carlsbad Unified School District from online to in-person, many students have struggled to keep up with the constant change. Within Carlsbad schools, asynchronous Wednesday’s were implemented into the schedule where students have a 30 minute advisory period and do the rest of school day on their own.

These Wednesdays have been crucial to students for maintaining their mental health while learning under these circumstances. Sage Creek has recently disclosed that the school board is attempting to remove Asynchronous Wednesdays from the school week entirely which poses a major threat to students’ well-being and takes away the only consistency that students have had this year regarding schedules.

Whether students chose to remain online or began going into school this past week, it is important to remember that students rely on these Wednesdays as a way to get through the week and it is not something that can be easily forgotten about as we move closer to typical school weeks.

Online learning has created many challenges for even the best students and has added many issues to the average student’s mental health. For many, the concept of returning to campus is extremely intimidating and it is even more stressful knowing that Asynchronous Wednesdays may be taken away during these trying times. 

To the Carlsbad Community and Fellow Bobcats:

If you want to make a difference in helping students’ well-being, please sign this petition! We ask that you include Asynchronous Wednesdays in our school week to provide some sense of consistency and a break from these hectic times.
