Educate our Children Wake County
We recently learned WCPSS school board is considering Plan C -remote learning ONLY and are voting this Tuesday, July 21st 1:00 p.m. This petition is created for individuals of Wake County to have a VOICE in our children's future! We strongly believe our children deserve and desperately need in-person instruction, 5 days per week beginning August 17, 2020.
We strongly believe WCPSS can provide a safe school environment according to Strong Schools NC Public Health Tool Kit(K-12).
We believe there is an achievement gap due to being denied access to in-person instruction, lack of supervision and lack of support to learn. We understand some families need Plan C- remote learning, as they are uncomfortable with sending their children to school. This should be an option for those families; however, we believe our children NEED in-person instruction in order to succeed with their academics. Many parents this spring learned that virtual learning does not work.
We believe keeping schools closed poses a greater health threat to children than reopening. We also believe it is imperative for schools to be open in order to avoid decline in mental health, provide for proper nutrition, provide a stable environment, avoid decline for at-risk students and allow monitoring of abuse and/or neglect.
