IASD PARENT CONCERNS ABOUT THE SUMMIT LEARNING PROGRAM

 

  • Due to the large number of students assigned to each teacher, as well as the haste with which the platform was implemented, teachers do not have time to check for questionable content that is not always age-appropriate and often peppered with offensive or crude content (see Dr. Powers's open letter).  

 

 

 

  • The poor implementation of the program, as described by parents at several IASD School Board meetings, including problems such as a lack of consistent mentoring; the ability for children to move (or even zoom) through assessments with no actual learning; and the false promise that children may work at their own pace, when clearly falling behind brings major consequences, particularly at the end of each quarter. 

 

 

 

  • An increase of headaches, eye strain, and migraines for our children due to excessive screen time.
