Lansing, MI, June 30, 2020 – Dr. Tina Kerr, executive director of the Michigan Association of Superintendents & Administrators, today released the following statement regarding the MI Safe Schools Roadmap released today.

“MASA is pleased to see concrete answers to some of the most pressing issues facing schools as they grapple with the logistics and health and safety realities of restarting in-person instruction in the fall. We are grateful to Gov. Whitmer, lawmakers, and the many stakeholders who worked to craft the MI Safe Schools Roadmap. While the Roadmap sets up much needed guidance, the hard work of developing local plans and implementing them is just beginning. In the coming weeks, schools will work with local health officers, faculty, staff, parents, and students to ensure a safe and healthy start to the school year. Additionally, educators will need assistance and support from lawmakers and decision makers in Lansing as we look at statute and rules that may need to change to accommodate our new reality and from leaders in Washington for additional funding to ensure student health and safety.”
