Welcome to the Caledonia Community Schools Continuity of Learning Plan (CLP) for implementation beginning Thursday, April 23, 2020. 

Caledonia Community Schools established a CLP that was co-created with many stakeholders in the district and is aligned to the state mandate for delivery of distance learning by Michigan public schools during the mandated school closure period. The CLP will enable our students to continue their learning during the school closure and not be required to make-up school days at the end of the mandated school closure period. Each student’s participation in the CLP, to the extent they are able, is required.
