Governor Kim Reynolds must rescind her July 17th proclamation which took autonomy away from the districts and mandated that all Iowa school children return to in-person learning for 50% or more of the time. Return to learn decisions must be given back to the districts who spent thousands of hours drafting their own return to learn plans this summer to ensure the health and safety of their individual students, staff, and communities.
If you live in the Dubuque school district:
The mandates issued by Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds to reopen Iowa schools during a national pandemic put students’ teachers’, and staff’s lives at risk.
Dubuque teachers, staff, parents, and community members petition the Dubuque Community School Board members and Superintendent Stan Rheingans to follow the lead of Des Moines Public School District’s Superintendent in 1) delaying the start of the school year until after Labor Day, 2) starting the school year 100% virtually until Covid19 cases have significantly declined in our community, and 3) openly challenging the dangerous mandates from Governor Reynolds that put lives at risk.
