Petition to BALTIMORE COUNTY, MD, Darryl L. Williams, Ed.D. Superintendent
Justice for a young man unfairly suspended while at home on a virtual class
The suspension for this young man should be completely removed and expunged from his record. He's only a boy and should not be held to the same legal standard as an adult. Furthermore, the punishment is egregious and will likely follow him his entire life unless it is removed. Common sense should prevail in this case, not harsh punishment in order that adults may make a 'political statement' at his expense. https://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/record-remains-for-child-suspended-for-bb-gun-seen-in-virtual-classroom/
Petition to Stamford BOE
Extend the Distance Learning Period for Stamford Public Schools
In order to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff, it is necessary to prolong the period of Distance Learning for Stamford Public Schools (SPS). There is a new strain of Covid-19 that is highly contagious, and with transmission rates higher than ever, it is essential too put the safety of students and their families first. Before school started, in August, the infection rate was below 1%. Before the December break, when the temporary distance learning period started, the infection rate was 6%. That number has now risen to 9%, and students are expected to return to school on Tuesday, January 19 in these unsafe conditions. SPS offered students two learning tracks in the beginning of the year. One being an alternating in-person schedule, known as the Hybrid track, and a full distance learning option, known as the Distance Learning and Teaching Academy (DTLA). This full distance program is inadequate and ineffective. It was poorly set up, and put together very last minute. This carelessness forced too many students planning on doing distance learning into the Hybrid track. Students no longer have the ability to switch between Hybrid and DTLA, as the deadline was January 8. Regardless, switching from Hybrid to DTLA meant forfeiting your schedule, and being placed in random classes. Switching to DTLA, for many, meant sacrificing our futures and education in order to keep our loved ones safe, along with having limited resources and available courses. Students should not have to chose between their education and keeping their families safe. Meanwhile, safety protocols within school are flimsy, and not everyone wears a mask all the time. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to postpone the return to in-person school, with the ever growing transmission rate and increase in carelessness regarding the virus. Until most of our teachers, and all essential workers, high risk peers and family members have access to a vaccine, it is NOT safe to return to school.
Petition to New York State House, New York State Senate, Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor Cuomo: Let ALL Sports Play!
As of today, basketball, football, boys lacrosse, wrestling, volleyball, and cheerleading are not cleared to play/begin. We would like Governor Cuomo and the New York State Department of Health to reconsider their decision and allow these sports to begin immediately. The social and emotional toll that this is taking on our student-athletes is a terrible thing to watch unfold in front of our eyes on a daily basis.
Petition to Loudoun County Public Schools
Return to Original LCPS Distance Learning Schedule
The students of Loudoun County, especially the senior class of 2021, are requesting that the LCPS administration does not move forward with the newly proposed second semester schedule. Students around the county are struggling with motivation to join classes and complete assignments, and adding on class time leaves students with less time for wellness breaks. Some students use their breaks to socialize, catch up on sleep, complete extra assignments, study, or do other activities that will help improve their mental health. Also, some students are responsible for caring for younger siblings, as some have parents who are essential workers, and these breaks give older siblings the ability to do so. The senior class is struggling with senioritis like never before, and a long lunch break to go see friends is sometimes the only thing we have to look forward to. This newly proposed schedule would also place extra work responsibilities on teachers who are already stressed. We know that hybrid learning is being put in place for the students who need it most, and continuing to have learning lab in school would allow students to ask more questions and get the help they need. The students of LCPS know that our administration wants the best for us, and sticking to the original plan would give students less stress than what is already on our plates.

Petition to Shaler Area School Board
Re-open Shaler Area schools to full in person instruction.
Since March 2020, students of Shaler Area School District have only attended in-person education sessions for a 6 week period between October 12 and November 18. With the District already being ranked at 326 in the State, a mere 12 days of hybrid instruction is extremely alarming. Most recently, we as a district were told that the remote instruction was extended yet another week due to "an abundance of caution". However, many surrounding districts including Fox Chapel, Hampton and many Private/Catholic schools have continued in-person education with minimal interruption. Our School Board and Administrators are supposed to be the general agent of this district in Public Education. They are failing our students, our children, and us as parents and tax payers. As a mother of two children here in the district, I have had to deal with the "incredible hardships" the administration said they are aware we are experiencing. However, I do not believe the School Board or Administration know the extent this Crisis Schooling is affecting our children. I am approaching the School Board at their next meeting and need some additional support. I want to show the members that the people, the parents, the students, the teachers, of this district want to be back in school; learning IN PERSON as an option. Please sign this petition and do not let our children fall any further behind.

Change the sexist and irrational dress code at paul knox middle school
Hello I am a student at home Knox middle School I wish to have the dress code changed I believe that it is super rational and sexist because for one most of the issues correlate to girls and simple body parts that are not distracting in any way shape or form the students of pkms should be able to wear what they wish if it is not inappropriate or illegal in any way because it does not harm anyone if you just want to wear an article of clothing that makes you happy

Tuskegee University Board of Trustees Is Not Meeting Its Fiduciary Responsibilities
Dear Family & Friends of Tuskegee University, OUR BELOVED ALMA MATER IS IN CRISIS!! Tuskegee University Board of Trustees Is Not Meeting Its Fiduciary Responsibilities: Three (3) Presidents, four (4) Interim presidents within 10-years. Three (3) Interim Provosts since 2018 impacting institutional effectiveness as a result of presidential instability. No capital campaign has been successfully created to address over $100M+ of debt, with an additional $140M+ in deferred maintenance costs since President Payton’s tenure ended in 2010. They have demonstrated an unwillingness to follow the Tuskegee University Governance Document. Lack of transparency. This petition is to remove these specific Board members: Norma Clayton, Chair (non-alumna/4th-term) John Page, Immediate-Past Chair/Nominating Committee Chair/Tuskegee University Foundation Chair (non-alumnus/3rd-term) Erick Harris, '09 (2015 recent graduate appointee/2nd-term) Chereece Warner, '08 (2011 recent graduate appointee/3rd-term) As a result of this petition, we also demand for more transparency with Alumni, Students, Staff, and Tuskegee Supporters. No new Board members should be seated until these changes are made. PLEASE SIGN & SHARE NOW to begin the process of ending the crisis.
