(WXYZ) — The State of Michigan this week has sent out a K-12 learning plan guide to help school districts lay out their plans for the remainder of the year with buildings closed.

It comes just one day after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced buildings would be closed for the remainder of the year, and schools could switch to virtual learning.

"Each District shall submit a single completed Assurance Document, Budget Outline, and Continuity of Learning Plan to its Intermediate School District. Each Public School Academy shall submit a completed Assurance Document, Budget Outline, and Continuity of Learning Plan to its Authorizer. A single Application should be filed for the district rather than multiple applications for individual schools within a district," the sheet ahead of the guide reads.

Each school will have to have assurances documents, a continuity of learning plan and a budget outline.
