We are public school parents and concerned Fargo residents launching a campaign to recall members of the Fargo school board.
Over this past year, so many big decisions were made by our school board and superintendent (and upheld by the board) left many wondering and saying “hmm what?”. “This makes no sense?”.
Some of these key decisions were the changing school boundaries, the Smart Restart Plan and the board taking away parents’ ability to make healthcare decisions for their children (mandatory mask mandate).
Parents and concerned residents were left out and ignored when major decisions were made and recourse was taken away.
We are driven to replace and elect great leaders to our local school board. Leaders with integrity, willingness to listen to parents and leaders that will put students first before personal political ideology.
* Forced Face Masks
On August 8th, 2021, the Fargo Board of Education (the school board) voted to make face masks mandatory for all students for the 2021-2022 school year.
We support a “mask recommend” policy, but not a forced mandate. A mask is a medical device and medical decisions belong to parents.
* School Boundaries
Restore common sense.
A student should be able to attend school in his or her local neighborhood.
* Use of Special Funds
* Loss of Learning
According to FPS assessment data, only 42.2% of all second graders are proficient in reading.
According to FPS assessment data, only 35.4% of all second grades are proficient in math.
* Treatment of FPS teachers and staff
Many teachers and staff have reported very challenging work conditions with little to no backing from school board members.
* Affirm parents’ right to make healthcare decisions
Preventing trading forced masks for forced jabs.
* Critical Race Theory (CRT)
Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a Marxist philosophy that embraces the concept that all social and cultural issues should be viewed through the lens of race.
