KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Kalamazoo Public Schools has announced that students will continue with virtual instruction through the rest of the school year.

“We surveyed parents and employees and reviewed research and health department data,” says Superintendent Dr. Rita Raichoudhuri. “The results of the formula indicated five of the nine points supported remaining fully virtual. A majority of KPS employees and parents who responded to the survey supported the virtual option over the two-day-a-week hybrid learning model.”

The decision comes after Governor Whitmer called for schools to offer some kind of in-person learning option by March 1.

KPS tells FOX 17 they will establish a COVID recovery plan for the 2021-2022 school year during the summer.

The last day of school for the 2020-2021 year is scheduled for June 11 this year.
