Available Options

In Person Learning

In person learning will take place in the classroom, 5 days a week. We will adhere to all State of Michigan Phase requirements. For more information about what that looks like in your child's building, please visit their individual page.

Remote Learning

Remote learning will take place with Fennville staff members on a daily basis. Times will be flexible based on grade level. This is a shorter term plan for parents who aren't quite ready to send their students back; whether it be because of Phase requirements, an immunocompromised household member, or any other as-needed reason. All students will learn remotely if FPS is put into Phase 3.

Virtual Academy of Allegan County

VAAC is our longer term option for parents. This is for those who want to commit to at least a semester, if not the entire academic year, to online-based learning. The VAAC is a partnership between Fennville, Otsego, Wayland, and Martin schools.

The planning process in Fennville has been guided by these principles:

  1. Students must be the focus of our work. We must repeatedly ask ourselves, “What is best for our students?”

  2. The District has a duty to establish policies, rules, and procedures to mitigate risk and keep our students and our staff safe.

  3. The best instructional environment includes the face-to-face interaction between a teacher and his or her students.

  4. In this time of uncertainty, the District needs to offer flexible options for families so that all students can move forward in their education with their local school district.

  5. For those who choose remote or online learning opportunities, support from the local school is an important component of the student’s success.
