BRUNSWICK, Ohio (WJW)– A group of families are asking Brunswick City Schools for an in-person option ahead of the new school year.
The district announced its plans for online-only learning earlier this month as it maneuvers the coronavirus pandemic. The academic year starts on Sept. 14 and opening-of-school activities, like open houses, will be done virtually.
On Monday, the Back2SchoolDevils committee held a rally ahead of the board of education’s meeting.
“We’re hoping they realize not every family has the option to be able to successfully virtually school their children,” parent and organizer Chelsea Boor said.
The committee said its petition pushing for options has more than 540 signatures.
“They told us we were going to have the option of virtual or in-person, and then one week late they took that option away,” Boor said.
