New Models for the 20-21 School Year

Dear School Leader,

Michigan Virtual has been engaged in conversation with district leaders across the state working to create plans to return to learning during the 20-21 school year. Most districts are planning to return to face-to-face instruction using digital content, with many offering a fully online model as an option.

Michigan Virtual has a number of solutions available to districts including content-only courses, either hosted in our learning management system or in yours. While we work to get comprehensive information available on our website, we are more than ready to begin discussions regarding how we can serve your district. Whether it is free content, full courses, professional learning for your teaching staff, or a hybrid model, my team and I are available to help.

If you would like to explore these solutions, please fill out the form below and we will be in contact shortly to set a time to meet.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
