March 22 Update

I have stated often over the past several days that we are faced with more questions than answers during these unprecedented times. I wish that I had easy answers (or, at times, any answers at all) to the questions that I receive. Friday’s flurry of communications from the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) and the Governor’s Office did little more than to add to the confusion surrounding remote learning, instructional time, and “forgiven” days. This has raised one BIG question: 

“Why should we do remote learning if it doesn’t count?”

Below, I have prepared two responses. The first is a simple answer. The second is a bit more complicated.
