EATON COUNTY, Mich. — Eaton Rapids joins other districts like Charlotte, Grand Ledge, and Potterville in offering virtual learning for students who don’t want face-to-face instruction.

The school board gave tentative approval for what they call a blended learning plan, offering both online learning and face-to-face instruction for the Fall 2020 semester.

The district superintendent says he thinks only 20% of students will choose to learn remotely.

According to Eaton Rapids, students opting out for the in-person plan will be divided into 2 groups and each group will go into the building two days a week.

One day a week will be dedicated to cleaning the schools.
