Ms. Reyes Uranga indicated she would have would have voted to support pass/fail but not without knowing parents were involved in the decision and how LBUSD staff came to its conclusion. Her full statement follows:
Ms. Reyes Uranga: Many school districts, in conjunction with teachers, parents and students have crafted particularly good creative options that allow for student choice and modified grading scales during the pandemic with some including a pass/fail option. Were LBUSD parents and students included in the decision to provide only a pass/fail -credit/no credit option? The LBUSD Board voted at their last meeting to reaffirm the staff's policy of pass/fail, citing their support for educational equity.
LBREPORT.com regrets that candidate Miller didn't respnd to our invitation to share his position on this matter with our readers..
In March, 2020, voters in SE LB chose LBCC Trustee/LB lawyer Doug Otto (who received over 50% of votes cast, avoiding a runoff) to represent their area which includes Wilson High.) (Incubent Jon Meyer is retiring.)
In 2022, LB's three other School Board seats will come to voters in their respective districts.
