LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Eaton Rapids school board once gave tentative approval for what they called a “blended learning plan.” They were to offer both online learning and face-to-face instruction for the Fall 2020 semester.

The district superintendent believed only 20% of students will choose to learn remotely.

According to Eaton Rapids, the ERPS staff has decided to start school remotely on Aug. 31. Through meeting with peers, health experts, as well as formed committees to design plans in accordance with Michigan’s Roadmap for a Safe Return to School. They felt that trying to adhere to health protocol in a timely manner was difficult.

The school system plans on having remote learning starting the first trimester. However, they will bring in students who need additional educational support. Starting November 18, certain classes will move into in-person in a blended learning mode.
