Cedar Springs Public Schools plans to open on September 8, 2020 for in-person instruction. For the majority of students, research shows in-person learning supports social-emotional and academic learning at the highest level.
The district's primary goal remains to keep all students and staff safe, taking appropriate measures within the classrooms and common areas to meet standards and orders set forth by local, state and national health authorities.
CSPS asks that all visitors and families respect and observe the announced and posted protocols when visiting CSPS schools and facilities. Our entire community works together to stay safe.
In Phases 4-6 of the MI Safe Schools Roadmap, teaching and learning will be provided with all of our students physically present on the CSPS campus.
Elementary students will stay in one classroom, with adults traveling between classes to prevent mixing of students. Secondary instruction will continue with a 6-period day with safety measures in place.
Students will shift between in-person and at-home learning, as required.
In Phases 1-3 of the MI Safe Schools Roadmap, teaching and learning is required to be delivered to students at home, streamlined through Canvas, the learning management system of CSPS, with a consistent daily schedule which will include live teaching and remote proactive, feedback, grading, and attendance requirements. This virtual instruction will reflect the coursework of CSPS. Special education services will continue, adhering to the safety requirements from the State of Michigan.
