Ashland Students Petition School Board for Student Vaccine Mandate

The cases and hospitalizations and even deaths went up, but students went back to school as planned in September.
Each district put its own touches on the approach to learning with COVID; Ashland Schools required vaccinations for staff even before the state of Oregon announced such a mandate.

Students are not included in the mandate, but some students think they should be.

Luke Seeley and Josh Datz introduced a petition to require vaccination in all eligible students.

The petitioners visit the JX to talk about their in-school experiences and their decision to start the petition.
