KSD School Board Recall Petition Near 1,200 Signatures–Growing
In the wake of the stunning Oct. 21 decision to delay middle and high school students return to class until February 2nd, furious Kennewick parents and upset students have started a Change.org petition demanding the resignation of three KSD School Board members.
Diane Sundvik, Ron Mabry and Board President Dawn Adams were the three who voted against hybrid return in class education that was scheduled to begin November 2nd. K-5 students are already in the A-B class twice a week.
Despite a green light from the Benton Franklin Health District, the board voted to delay, sending shock waves throughout the District.
The petition at last check had 1,197 signatures. It reads in part:
"Three of our Kennewick School Board members (Dawn Adams, Diane Sundvik and Ron Mabry) have repeatedly voted to NOT return to in-person learning, despite the advice of the CDC, American Academy of Pediatrics, our local health department, and our district superintendent, Traci Pierce. The latest vote occurred Wednesday, October 21, when Diane Sundvik motioned to push out the prior start date of November 2, 2020 for middle and high schoolers to the beginning of the second semester, February 2, 2021. A start date of February 2, 2021 has our middle and high schoolers OUT OF SCHOOL FOR NEARLY A YEAR!! "
The petition seeks the immediate resignation of these three members. To see the petition for yourself, click on the button below.
