Parents push for recall of 4 Chippewa Valley school board members
CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Parents are pushing for a recall of four Chippewa Valley Schools Board of Education members over decisions related to in-person learning. It targets Board President Frank Bednard, Vice President Denise Aquino and trustees Beth Pyden and George Sobah. Parents who support the recall said the issue is the lack of in-person options for students -- a frustration that goes back to last August when Chippewa Valley Schools went completely virtual. Since the recall language has been approved and neighboring districts have moved to offer greater in-person choices, a letter went home to parents advising them that Chippewa Valley will discuss implementing more in-person options next week. “Dakota High School is the biggest high school in the state right now and Chippewa Valley is right behind it, so we have special challenges we need to overcome when we have that many children,” he said.

The district acknowledges the fact that most children do better with face to face learning, but said that science says it’s not safe. However, some parents, like Pearce, said there is still no reason why students could not be in school.
