As of 11:00 am on April 2nd, Governor Whitmer has signed an executive order suspending in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year. This means that no students residing in Michigan will be returning to school until the next school year begins, presumably in August. However, there has been some discussion of starting the 2020 school year early, so we do not know precisely when school will resume.
Standardized tests scheduled for the remainder of the year, including the SAT, PSAT, and M-Step will be canceled or postponed until next year.
“Governor Gretchen Whitmer today signed Executive Order 2020-35, which orders all K-12 school buildings to close for the remainder of the school year — unless restrictions are lifted — and ensures continuing of learning by setting guidelines for remote learning. District facilities may be used by public school employees and contractors for the purposes of facilitating learning at a distance while also practicing social distancing.”
