EGUSD PARENT Coalition
We are a coalition of local parents and professionals concerned about the 10 months and counting that students have been out of school. We are committed to working together with our school community to safely return students and teachers to the classrooms as quickly as possible. Read our letters to the EGUSD Board of Education here.
We believe there needs to be a plan for a complete and safe reopening of schools, with an option for distance learning, and to include extracurricular activities.
Parent and Student groups have been under-represented thus far (an impetus for us to organize under this entity to effectively work & collaborate with key stakeholders).
There are district precedents--locally, national and globally--that have shown schools can open safely.
Science and health studies show that the significant side effects of distance learning are harming our children, and long term effects are likely.
At risk groups are suffering the most and need immediate intervention.
Hear what community members are saying...from students to parents, teachers, and other community stakeholders!
