Every student from Pre-K through twelfth grade will have access to learning through the most advanced IT devices available. Learning will occur online at least 80% of the time. School buildings will be open on evenings and Saturdays for remediation, recreation and community activities for the purpose of socialization.” Principal from Michigan © Project Tomorrow 2011
