Newaygo County School Districts Offer Virtual Delivery Model
Opening date for local school districts in Newaygo County will be August 31, 2020. Our staff have been working hard developing plans for returning to school with delivery models that include face-to-face instruction, as well as 100% virtual instruction. Regardless of what plan is ultimately implemented, please be assured that your family and your students will remain an important part of your local school district and we are working to have a plan to meet each family’s preference.
We know that regardless of the plan, some families will not yet be comfortable with sending their students back into a school building. Therefore, we would like to announce that all public schools in Newaygo County will also have a 100% virtual (online) delivery model designed by educators, in addition to face-to-face instruction. Students enrolled in the virtual (online) delivery model will still be an important part of their local school district.
Very soon, families will receive a survey about their preferred delivery model, which will help us plan for fall 2020. More information on the curriculum, staff, and teachers will be shared in the near future.
We know this is a difficult time, as families are preparing their children the upcoming school year. We appreciate your patience and support.
