Vesteral Central School District Parents Petion against the proposed reopening plan for 2020-2021
We the parents of the student body of the Vestral Central School district in Vestal, N.Y. do herby appose the proposed reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year. At this time the parents, advocating for their children, are requesting a full review and redesign of the proposed plan to be resubmitted for review by the state and the parent body. There are open questions and concerns centered around Education being supplied and educational materials befitting the needs of the children, Special Education and the adherences to 504 and IEPs, Transportation, Safety, sanitation protocols while the children are in attendance, class room set ups and the lack of repurposing space to allow for better social distancing and inclusion. There are many unresolved concerns around social and emotional learning being provided, behavioral and mental health, welfare and safety as well as nutrition. Please let it be known any survey submitted by the school district proposing acceptance of the plan from parents was presented to the parents as a survey to gather information but did not offer the parents the ability to show opposition to the plan. Any survey showing the parents acceptance of the plan should not be accepted by the state as the data was falsly collected.
