PDF DocumentExtended Continuity of Learning Plan

In order to receive state aid for 2020-2021, a district was required to provide instruction under an approved extended COVID-19 learning plan.  An extended COVID-19 learning plan must include several specified elements focused on the mode of instruction, benchmark assessments, required reporting, transparency posting, and 2-way interaction with students. This requirement was established in law with Public Acts 147-149 of 2020 on August 20, 2020, and later amended by Public Act 165 on September 30, 2020.

For many districts, the Extended COVID-19 Learning Plan did not replace the district approved COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan.  It was an additional plan that included new assurances and sections on educational goals, instructional delivery, grading, and equitable access.
