DETROIT The Michigan Senate is calling a special Saturday session to tackle the debate centered around forcing school districts to offer an in-person option. Among the topics of debate is whether schools would risk losing their funding if they dont offer an in-person option, but thats not a done deal. As parents get ready to send their children to school, there is still a sense of confusion. Metro Detroit parents and teachers, even some students, discuss the upcoming 2020-21 school year as districts decide whether to conduct classes virtually and/or in person. With the school year fast approaching it may be time to rethink where your student is set up for remote learning.
How to make sure a tutor is safe to bring into your home with many Michigan schools going virtual
You are going to have them probably alone with your kids for several hours, former FBI agent Ned Timmons said. Weve got to see who these people are.With many Michigan schools announcing virtual learning in the fall, some families with financial resources are considering hiring tutors to help their children. They hired a longtime private tutor and former teacher who was out on bond after allegedly soliciting a student for sex. His advice is to do a comprehensive, nationwide background check. A nationwide background check like the ones Timmons referenced can cost between $100-$150 and take two or three days to complete.
