Administration will review the Walled Lake Schools' Return to Learn 2020 plan that outlines both in-person and distance learning for the upcoming school year, and aligns with the MI Safe Schools COVID-19 Task Force on Education Return to School Advisory Council.  As Michigan is currently in Phase 4 of the MI Safe Start plan, in-person instruction is permitted with specific safety requirements and recommendations. The Return to Learn 2020 plan involved staff and parents who volunteered to work on two committees to review research, local state, and national health and safety data, and options for learning. The Fall Planning Task Force, made up of more than 80 stakeholders, including staff members, parents, and community members, and considered feedback from more than 4,000 returned parent surveys and the many recommendations in various plans and ideas posed by schools and organizations throughout the country. The Fall Planning Steering Committee, some 25 District leaders, developed this plan based on the Fall Planning Task Force input, and the State requirements and recommendations.
