One Michigan School District Is Going All-Online This Fall
As we wait on pins and noodles here in Genesee County to find out what the HECK is going on with our kids' schools...
...the Fraser school district has already made the call - all online education, starting this fall.
Now, it's important to point out that their schools will be open for the 2020-2021 school year for parents who are comfortable actually sending their kids to school for face-to-face education; the online courses are just an option.
The public school district, which is just northeast of Detroit, has announced that they'll have two options for students this fall - in-person or online.
According to their Facebook page, for the parents who choose the online-only option:
*Fraser Virtual K-12 will be taught by our teachers and offer the same high-quality education and support that you expect.
*Students enrolled in this option will still be able to participate in band, athletics, performing arts, and student organizations.
*Elementary students may need to come in occasionally for small group meetings and support.
*Middle school and high school students will be able to participate in hybrid classes and still take courses in CTE.
The district will host several webinars throughout the summer to answer parents' questions as they arise.
Personally, I don't think that this is a bad idea, as a lot of schools are facing budget cuts due to COVID-19. *eye roll* I'm anxiously awaiting our son's school district's announcement about what school will look like this fall. Hoping for a mix of in-person and online. What would YOU like to see your kids' school do?
