We have made the decision to restrict physical access to the GHPS Administration Building. Our office remains open virtually and is staffed for our public and employees. This remains consistent with our other district buildings. Our central office staff will continue to work from the building and will be available by phone, Google Meet, or email to assist staff and families. Please utilize the outdoor dropbox or mail to submit any hard copies of documents. Stay well! - Mr. Fetterhoff

Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order No. 2020-21 mandating a “Temporary requirement to suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life.” Per the executive order, Godwin Heights Public Schools (GHPS) must designate in writing, which of their workers are necessary to conduct minimum basic operations and inform such workers of that designation.

Per the Michigan Department of Education (MDE):

 

Question: If an LEA or PSA (Public Schools) can meet all requirements to transition to virtual learning (online), would the time during the mandated closure be counted as instructional time (will it count toward graduation or progressing to the next grade)? 

 

Answer: No. There is no mechanism to earn instructional time during a period of mandated school closure. However, schools can and are encouraged to offer supplemental learning opportunities to students using distance learning methods as they see fit. MDE will not be granting seat time waiver requests during this time.
