Launch Michigan, has just announced a major statewide survey of our state’s educators, parents, and community leaders. Through this effort, they hope to learn more about our shared distance learning experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s time to dig deeper into our state’s shared experiences with distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you are a teacher, a principal, a parent, or an interested community member, you’ve got a special perspective to share.
