DEARBORN, Mich. – The Dearborn Schools Board of Education voted Monday to extend online learning in the district until at least its next meeting on Oct. 12.

The district started school on Aug. 31 with plans to be online until at least Oct. 1.

UPDATE Oct. 13: Dearborn Public Schools extends online learning another month

When Dearborn Public Schools leaders first announced the plan for starting the school year virtually amid the coronavirus pandemic they said middle school and high school students should expect to spend five to eight hours a week on each class, totaling 30 or more hours each week. Elementary students should expect to work 20 to 30 hours a week on school work, officials said.
