DETROIT (AP) — Summer school remains up in the air for kindergarten through 12th graders across Michigan.

The Detroit News reports Friday that districts have not yet been cleared to allow learning inside schools. But some districts are making tentative plans for summer sessions.

They're still under Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's executive order closing buildings for the current academic year that ends in June. But some districts are making tentative plans for summer sessions. More than 200 students have registered for summer school in Novi Community Schools. The Berkley School District sent a survey to parents asking if they are interested in summer school.
