Some parents in Lodi oppose California’s upcoming COVID-19 vaccine regulation for students – and they’re asking their school district to take a stand.

The Lodi Unified School District Board of Education is hearing those complaints — and they’re considering a new resolution against the state mandate. The draft resolution was discussed at a school board meeting Tuesday night. Most parents at the meeting said they did not want their children to be forced to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Parents present were pleased that the school board had discussed a drafted resolution, but the next step was to persuade the board to pass it.

The resolution reads: “The Board of Education of the Lodi Unified School District respectfully recommends that the California State Legislature not require COVID-19 immunization for students and staff of the TK Local Education Authority. -12 which should make a recommendation. ”

Melissa Evans is the parent of two high school students in the Lodi Unified School District. Her son will be a senior next school year, and she stands ready to act if a vaccine is required.

“My last child, I’m going to drop out of school,” Evans said.

Evans, who is also an employee of the school district, said she just wants freedom of choice.

“We should have the right to do what we want medically for ourselves and our children,” Evans said.

Evans is not alone. Several parents spoke out in public comment, urging the Board of Education to pass the resolution – and take further action, if needed.

“If rejected by the Legislature, will you respect their tyrannical wishes, or satisfy the needs of the people?” parent Tye Brockmeier asked: “These are our kids we’re talking about. That’s where I draw lines in the sand.”

Many council members said they supported the resolution, but they also said they would still follow any rules from the state and county. They say they have a responsibility to protect the district’s finances.

But parents who spoke at the meeting hope the board stands firm against the vaccine mandate.

It is important to note that even if the resolution is passed, it still has no real power over the state. The parents said during the meeting that they wanted some stronger language in the resolution. The school board has the ability to amend it. They will then bring it back for a vote in January.
