Returning to Learning 2020

Over the past few months our Ferndale team has come together to create a path forward as we enter the 2020-2021 school year.  While no plan is perfect, I am confident that the Ferndale Schools Preparedness & Response Plan is the right fit for our community at this time.

In creating this plan our team of administrators, teachers, secretaries, and paraprofessionals studied a tremendous amount material, from academic studies done in other countries which returned to school last Spring, to guidance from the Center of Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics, to other state and local return to school plans, and parent and student feedback.  What became clear after reviewing this vital and sometimes contradictory information was that unfortunately there was no clear cut answer for how best to conduct instruction this Fall.

The safety of our students, staff, and Ferndale family remains our top priority. That is why our Board of Education has adopted our virtual plan for the Fall of 2020. While our Ferndale plan is primarily virtual, there will be limited opportunities for students to attend in-person as part of our Learning Support Labs or pop-up instructional events.

Details can be found in our Returning to Learning Hub »
 

Please know that this decision was not made lightly. Our goal remains returning to in-person instruction as soon as it is feasible for us to do so in the safest possible manner.

PDF DocumentFerndale Schools Extended COVID-19 Learning Plan — Updated October 1, 2020

Update October 7th, 2020: The October 2nd Michigan Supreme Court opinion does not effect our remote learning. Remote learning that occurs during the COVID-19 pandemic is governed by the “Return to Learn” bills signed into law in August 2020 (Public Acts 147, 148, 149) and amended by the recently passed budget bill. Additionally, COVID-19 Extended Learning Plans are required by Section 98a of the State School Aid Act, MCL 388.1698a; MDHHS emergency orders entered under MCL 333.2253 (epidemics); Any school board action, including approval of Preparedness and Response Plans and Extended Learning Plans, ratification of Letters of Agreement, and adoption of standards
found within the Executive Orders are also not invalidated by this Supreme Court opinion.

Curriculum Quarterly - Science & Our Students

The latest FPS Curriculum Quarterly is now available. Our Curriculum & Instruction Department will be releasing a new issue 4 times a year that will briefly highlight areas of teaching and learning in Ferndale Public Schools. We look forward to sharing our programming overviews with you.  If you have questions, please contact Johanna Mracna at johanna.mracna@ferndaleschools.org.
