People posing in protest outside Cols City Schools
On Monday morning, October 12, a group of families delivered our "Press Pause on the Premature Return to Blended Learning" petition to the school board and the superintendent of Columbus City Schools. We created strings of paper cutout children to accompany each copy of the petition. Each cutout represented one of the 1200+ signatures asking the board to pause reopening, communicate with families and negotiate respectfully with our teachers.   The Monday morning announcement to consider the next two weeks "orientation" does not address the concerns raised in our petition, namely, teacher negotiations, communication with parents and safety precautions. We respectfully ask that the board and superintendent reconsider this plan until they are able to form a respectful, considerate and safe plan with teacher and family input. #presspause #OurCCS SEE VIDEO IN LINK
