For now, it appears Sturgis Public Schools students will have two options for education when school resumes Aug. 24.
Superintendent Art Ebert said one proposal is to participate in on-campus learning. The other is to use technology from home to fulfill learning requirements.
The final decision will likely be dictated by at what phase the region is in as the start of school approaches.
He said a back-to-school committee was formed to examine how to bring education to the district’s students for the 2020-21 school year, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to concern health officials and the community.
Ebert said he understands every family has varying needs and comfort levels with regards to in-person learning, and the district is committed to supporting families, with either back-to-school offering or school-from-home offering.
The state is currently in Phase 4 of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s six-phase approach to public interaction.
Ebert said the choice parents and caregivers make is strictly up to their level of comfort.
