Williamsville Students Protest Remote Learning, Chant “Bring Back School” [VIDEO]
It's been a whirlwind past week or two for the Williamsville School District.
It was announced last Friday, that 201 Williamsville School District staff members had resigned or took a leave of absence.
That same Friday, school Superintendent Scott Martzloff said that grades 5-12 students who chose to conduct remote-learning, would have their return to school date pushed back indefinitely.
On September 7th, Superintendent Martzloff was put on administrative leave.
Tonight (September 10th), the Williamsville School District announced that grades 5-12 would be full-remote-learning starting Tuesday, with targeted dates to get those students back into the building.
They hope to get grades 5-6 back by November 16th. Grades 7-12 by January 4th, 2021.
Tonight, after the full remote-learning decision was announced, students, accompanied by their parents in support, gathered outside the offices of the Williamsville School District.
Chants of "bring back school" can be heard. You can watch the video below, courtesy of WKBW.
