COVID-19 Precautions & Information

COVID-19
GEE e-Learning Plan
 

We hope this update finds you and your family in good spirits and good health during this time of
shelter in place.

As you now know, all GEE academy school buildings are closed for the remainder of this 2019-20
school year. We are excited to share that having had successfully and seamlessly transitioned to elearning in just a matter of days, we could not be more pleased with how well our students, teachers, principals and staff have made the transition from physical classroom to virtual classroom. The creativity and innovation has been, and continues to be, nothing short of impressive. We are committed to ensuring 100% PreK-12 equity in access to our daily e-learning lessons, including any and all
students with special needs.

Governor Whitmer declared that students will be promoted to the next grade beginning the 2020-2021
school year, and seniors will graduate, as long as they are on course to pass their current grade. Simply
stated, if students consistently engage in their daily e-learning lessons and continue to demonstrate
growth toward proficiency in each of their core academic subjects, they will advance to the next grade
level next fall.

Please know that we understand fully that just as we are making the transition to this new reality, you are, too. We understand that our students and their families are experiencing significant disruptions in their lives. Your child’s health and safety are paramount. That said, we continue our commitment to teaching and learning and providing students a sense of normalcy, direction and purpose. At the same time, we do not want our students to experience any added stress or anxiety. If for any reason your child needs an accommodation or modification relative to their e-learning lesson experience, do not
hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher.

Finally, there will be no state or standardized testing this spring and all COVID-19 implications
relative to grades, report cards, high school transcripts, AP classes, et. al., will be communicated to you
via your child’s teachers and/or your principal.

Sincerely,

Mohamad Issa, Director

Michael Conran, Superintendent
