Fraser Public Schools offering virtual K-12 this fall

By: Nick Mordowanec | Fraser - Clinton Township Chronicle | Published June 23, 2020

FRASER — On June 12, Fraser Public Schools announced it will launch virtual K-12 classrooms for the 2020-2021 school year.

Classes will still be taught by Fraser instructors “and offer the same high-quality education and support that Fraser Public Schools is known for.”

Students who enroll virtually will still be able to participate in band, athletics, performing arts and student organizations. Middle and high school students will still be able to participate in hybrid classes and take career and technology education courses. Elementary students may “occasionally” need to come in for small meetings or support.

More information is expected to be shared during parent webinars this summer.

“While we are planning for students to return to our school buildings in September (based upon the status of (the) governor’s executive orders to reopen), we realize that some families may not be comfortable with this or would like alternative options for their child’s education,” said Superintendent Carrie Wozniak in a press release. “We believe that it is important to provide that choice to our families.”

Current families and new school-of-choice families were able to start enrolling June 15, with a cutoff date of Aug. 26.

The school-of-choice window for students seeking traditional schooling, which must include Macomb County residents who were not suspended in the past two years or never expelled, will remain open until Sept. 11.

The district said about 100 teachers and staff members volunteered as part of the district-wide “Return to Schools Task Force,” working with local, state and national education and health officials to develop a plan for the upcoming school year. Community input will be part of that plan.
