Dear FAPS Families,
On September 14, 2020, at the regular Board meeting, the Fenton Area Public Schools (FAPS) Board of Education approved our Continuous Learning Plan. In order to comply with the State School Aid Act, as amended by the return to Learn Legislation, public school districts must present a Continuous Learning Plan at each Board meeting and report on the goals written within the plan. The FAPS plan will be posted on our website as soon as we receive formal approval from the Genesee Intermediate School District and the state.
Our Continuous Learning Plan maintains the same instructional models that are in our Return to School Plan, including both a face to face option and a virtual option. The plan also includes the same anticipated return date of October 1, 2020 for our families choosing in-person instruction. The word anticipated is used, and will be used, based on factors that may be out of our control that would lead to another delay in returning to school. It is important for our families to know that we are planning for an October 1, 2020 return so you may plan accordingly. More information will be sent home by the building administration with return to learn information in their weekly newsletters.
We are excited to have our face to face learners join us in our classrooms and are working hard to make Tiger Virtual Academy a program that is not only safe and consistent, but is a program that meets the needs of the families choosing to remain virtual. No matter what model of instruction you chose for your child, please know that we will continue to navigate through the number of challenges that have been placed before us in these unprecedented times.
If you are interested in utilizing our childcare at the Ellen Street campus or our preschool program beginning October 1, 2020, please contact Amber Brown at (810) 591-8349 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Adam Hartley
