BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (WXYZ) — Parents and students of the Birmingham School District plan to hold a rally on Tuesday to support in-person learning.

VIRTUAL LEARNING: Here are the metro Detroit school districts with online learning plans for the fall

Those rallying are demanding that the school district provide "safe, in-person learning" for all students in all schools in the Birmingham School District for the 2020-2021 academic school year.

Demonstrators feel that a safe environment conducive to learning can be accomplished.

Currently, the district plans to start the school year virtually, with a plan to revisit options in November 2020.

The rally will be held at Birmingham Groves High School from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
