I only reason I can see that the district is dragging their feet on applying for a waiver is resistance from the Teachers Union. I thought we had a Superintendent and an elected School Board to run our school district not a Collective Bargaining Union. The kids need to be back in school, I see what our Grand Kids are missing with a ton of family support, I just can't even begin to imagine the families without any support.

Are there any private schools in Alameda not submitting paperwork to get back in the classroom?

I have 2 at PUSD and there is only so much you can teach online through zoom and youtube videos to an elementary school child. All over the country, elementary schools are back in session but somehow we can't even submit paperwork to show we are dedicated to these youngsters?!? Bad optics in my opinion...
