Hudsonville Public Schools outsources virtual learning this fall

Ottawa County

HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — Hudsonville Public Schools has announced how the district will handle learning the fall, saying it will outsource its virtual learning.

That means students who opt to take classes online will get their curriculum from a third-party source. 

District officials say as long the region is in phase 4 of reopening and in-person instruction is allowed, parents will have the option to send their kids to school.

The other options are online instruction and home schooling. If a parent chooses in-person instruction for their kids, there will be precautions put in place to protect against COVID-19.

If a parent chooses to home-school, they will no longer be a Hudsonville student. If they want to rejoin, they will be assessed and placed in the appropriate grade.

The district will hold a series of town halls in August for people to hear more about each of these options and ask any questions. Those will take place on the dates below:

  • Elementary focus (Alward, Bauer, Georgetown, Park) on Tuesday, Aug. 4, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Middle School focus: Tuesday, Aug. 4, from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
  • High School focus: Wednesday, Aug. 5, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Elementary focus (Forest Grove, Jamestown Lower, Jamestown Upper, South): Wednesday, Aug. 5, from 7:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Links to these meetings will be available on Hudsonville Public Schools’ website prior to the start of each meeting.

Grand Rapids Public Schools says it will hold a press conference Monday at 2:30 p.m. to announce its plan for fall schooling.
