(FOX 2) - Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced in June that schools can resume in-person learning this coming school year if the school's region is in Phase 4, which currently includes all regions in Michigan.
Districts were then given direction to create a COVID-19 preparedness and response plan under the multiple phases of the economy restart plan. You can read more about Gov. Whitmer's Return to School Roadmap here. Below is a list of which districts have released their plans so far for the coming school year.
This list is not all-inclusive and FOX 2 may not yet be aware of a district's decision. We advise checking your district's website for the latest information. You can also alert us to your school's decision by emailing us at email@example.com.
