Iowa governor says students won't receive credit if school districts defy 50% mandate on in-person

Iowa governor says students won’t receive credit if school districts defy 50% mandate on in-person classes


JOHNSTON — Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said Tuesday students in school districts that hold classes exclusively online without receiving state approval will not receive credit.

The announcement comes one day after two Iowa school districts said they plan to defy the governor’s mandate that at least 50% of classes be held in person this fall.

“Schools that choose not to return to school for at least 50% in-person instruction are not defying me, they are defying the law,” Reynolds said Tuesday during a press conference.

“If schools move to primarily remote learning without approval, according again to the law, those days do not count toward instructional time.”

1. I'd say parents and others in Iowa need to kick their 'death to all' governor.

2. A reading from the Second Book of Samuel (Jackson):

Knowest thou,
for it is written in stone,
when plague stalks the land,
stay the fuck home.


Amen.

Reynolds is an idiot.

3. She has 3 plus more years....

She was just reelected. She had Steve King (neo Nazi) as her campaign manager.

Ugghh. She doesn't need to fear Trump reprisals or a primary by doing the right thing.

We have no mask mandate and now a death mandate for kids, teachers, bus drivers, etc.

We are having our child go virtual for the first 13 weeks.

I am encouraging our district leaders via email to sue. Get a big old class action lawsuit going.

When they asked for guidance Governor Kimmy no brains said nothing. When districts came up with reasonable plans -- she threatens them.

I am disgusted to live here. If another decent country would let me emigrate, I would.

4. Reynolds has chosen this hill to die on.

She's up in 2022.
