All schooling has turned to online courses due to the Coronavirus. The Michigan Department of Education came out to say that the online schooling will not count toward the students required annual instructional hours.
"There is no mechanism to earn instructional time during a period of mandated school closure," Deputy State Superintendent Vanessa Kessler told school leaders Friday in a memo. "However, schools can and are encouraged to offer supplemental learning opportunities to students using distance learning methods as they see fit."
There is no official announcement yet on if students will have to attend school over the summer. Teachers have been working around the clock trying to get the online schools up for their students only to find out that none of this will count.
