NO to Hybrid High School for Plano Students
We as Plano parents and Plano citizens do not want the extension of the Forced Hybrid Model for grades 9-12 Extension. Two days a week is not an adequate education. 40 percent learning model with no end date is not helping our students. That’s a 60 percent decrease in teaching for the students. This will not help them be successful in their high school career. It is harming the mental and educational health of the students. PISD did not give parents the choice. PISD did not give equal consideration the the 9-12 grade students who chose the face to face option. PISD is not giving equal access and equal education. It is a mandated decision with no end date! Our students in 9-12 grade have a right to 5 days a week education. Parents were not given a choice, a seat at the table, a warning. Put the educational needs of the students first and allow the students the choice they made for 5 days a week face to face education with teachers. The neighboring school districts are open for high school students who chose face to face. Plano took that choice away. End the forced hybrid model and allow the students to receive 5 days a week teacher instruction.
