PETITION: ASK CONGRESS TO ALLOCATE EMERGENCY FUNDS TO MAKE DISTANCE LEARNING POSSIBLE

LESS THAN ONE PERCENT of federal pandemic relief has gone to K-12 education.

We need Congress to do more.

TO MAKE DISTANCE LEARNING WORK, WE NEED:

  • Broadband internet access for every child
  • Individualized tutors for at-risk students & children with special needs
  • Learning coaches to support families and educators 
  • Funds for school districts to provide neighborhood facilities & staff for pod-school options

TO MAKE IT SAFE TO RE-OPEN SCHOOLS, WE NEED:

  • Dedicated testing capacity with same-day results for schools
  • Access to masks, distance thermometers and protective equipment
  • Additional staff & expanded facilities to meet CDC guidelines for class sizes
  • Increased bus routes to allow for social distancing
