For the table below:

“Primary start plan type” explains what the district’s primary plan is for students in the fall: In-person start, virtual only start and/or hybrid start.

An “in-person start” means just that: schools will return to full-time, face-to-face learning in the fall.

“Virtual only start” means schools will begin the year online -- though many expect to transition to traditional in-person learning at some point in the fall.

“Hybrid start” means that schools will carry out a combination of both in-person and remote instruction in the fall.

Many Michigan school districts are also offering a completely virtual learning option for the 2020-21 school year for students, regardless of the schools’ primary plan -- schools offering this option are labeled “Yes” in the third column.
