DLN: Administrator Simulator – Student Discipline

Welcome to the MASSP Administrator Simulator, created by administrators for administrators, to provide real-life scenarios for school leaders to grow and learn from. During each simulation, the administrator is introduced to an employee or school situation in the form of a story problem. With each story problem, the administrator will be given a multiple-choice and prompted to choose one response to reflect how they would address the situation at each stage. After each choice, the story will continue to play out based on the administrator’s decision. When the story problem gets to the end, the administrator will reflect on the outcome and determine if it supports the action-steps essential for creating a healthy culture of accountability and high expectations.
To maximize the tool we have provided some ideas for different ways to use the tool and we have designed thought-provoking questions to consider before, during, and after the simulation exercise is complete. The series of questions will help you and your team reflect on current practices, identify areas of improvement, and help strengthen your ability to manage courageous conversations with all employees so that the environment maintains a balanced workload, is built on trust, demonstrates equity, and is transparent through accountability.

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.
