LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will strongly encourage all K-12 schools in Michigan to reopen for in-person instruction by March 1 as the starts offering the coronavirus vaccine to teachers.
Two education officials briefed on the governor’s planned announcement spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity ahead of a Friday afternoon news conference.
Many schools have been fully remote during the pandemic.
The governor will not seek to require in-person classes — her unilateral emergency powers were curbed by a court ruling — but she wants them at least to be offered.
