Make Larry A. Ryle's google meet optional again
During this swap to virtual at Larry A. Ryle, the school has transitioned into a schedule where you have to check into a class for every period. Although a good idea on paper, this system causes:
- Students to not be able to do long, standardized tests between classes because of constraint on time.
- Students to have to push back work just to go into a 20 minute google meet that yields no new information, and only interrupts students during the school day
- Teachers to have to mold their whole schedule around conducting multiple, unnecessary google meets.
Before the switch to virtual at the start of the school year, we had a perfect system: Sign into google meets with your teachers IF you need help, and marked attendance through completion of assignments and activity on canvas. Now that the school is requiring that all teachers do a google meet at the start of each class period, this is clogging up many of my fellow student schedules, including my own. I petition for a reversal of the new requirements, because there was nothing wrong with it and it worked better than what we have now.
If you decide to sign it: Please spread this to as many Ryle students as possible. This petition will be included in an email to Mr. Shafer about the consequences of these google meets. The more signatures the better!
