(WXYZ) — Some parents and students in the Chippewa Valley School District will be holding a rally Monday in support of in-person learning.

They feel it is a better option than the current 100 percent virtual model.

Several other Macomb County districts have some form of in-person learning.

Utica Community Schools, the state's second-largest school district, is taking steps to incorporate face-to-face learning and starting up middle school athletics.

Supporters of in-person learning in Chippewa Valley say they aren't looking to force their views on other parents. That's why they're looking for the administration to give them variety.

"We like the idea of having choice," parent Tom Sokol said. "So if you're not comfortable, have virtual learning. If you're more comfortable, some type of face-to-face learning option."

The plan will not be voted on by the board until next Monday at the regularly scheduled meeting.
