Executive Order (EO 2020-35) mandated all Michigan districts and schools provide distance learning opportunities amid COVID-19 school closures. As part of EO 2020-35, school districts submitted Continuity of Learning Plans (CLP) to continue receiving state aid for school operations. Districts’ completed applications – including assurances documents, CLPs, and budget outlines – were submitted to intermediate school districts and authorizing bodies for approval.
In April 2020, the Grand Valley State University (GVSU) Charter School Office (CSO) partnered with Basis Policy Research (Basis) to analyze CLPs and describe how districts would support students’ learning and well-being. The present study extends prior work by leveraging GVSU teacher survey data to examine stakeholders’ perceptions of CLP implementation during COVID-19 school closures.
