Mandated Distance Learning

Mandated Distance Learning will occur if it is determined that in-person instruction poses a significant risk to our students and staff. This may be determined in partnership with the Livingston County Health Department or under the direction of the State of Michigan. Additionally, if a classroom is required to quarantine, that class will participate in Mandated Distance Learning. Lastly, depending on the circumstances, one school may switch to Mandated Distance Learning while other schools remain open for in-person instruction.

There are three likely scenarios that would cause the a school of the district to switch mandated distance learning.
  • Very short-term closure for contact tracing - to coordinate with the Livingston County Health Department, one or more classes or buildings may be closed for one to three days in order to facilitate contact tracing and quarantine notifications.
  • Short-term closure for Quarantine or Health Department Mandate - as directed by the Livingston County Health Department, one or more classes or buildings may be closed from one to three weeks.
  • Long-term closure - based on the spread of COVID-19 in our region, it may be necessary to suspend in-person learning for the entire district for a longer period of time (beyond a month).

Mandated Distance Learning will be a temporary replacement for a traditional face-to-face school environment in which classroom teachers would take attendance and lead instruction with students fully engaged from home for a specific period of time.

Mandated Distance Learning is not the same as Highlander Virtual (which parents select for a semester or year), and it is not the "crisis schooling" model that we experienced in the Spring.
