Hello Milan Community,
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act was signed into law in March of 2021. Under this Act, the U.S. Department of Education is providing an additional $121.9 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III Fund). Milan Area Schools will be receiving and expending these funds during the 2022-2023 school year.
During the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years, Milan Area Schools, like every other district in the state, was operating under an Extended Continuity of Learning Plan (ECOL). The ARP ESSER III Act requires each district to have a “Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan”. The district developed a plan and accepted public input on the plan during a community Zoom on September 26, 2022 (video, presentation).
This plan is required, even though Milan Area Schools has been providing full in-person instruction since August 30, 2021. The components that the plan must encompass are dictated by the Act. However, the content of the plan is developed by the district and must consider public input in the finalization and regular review.
The district will be hosting two additional community Zoom input sessions on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, at 6:00 PM and Tuesday, September 14, 2023, at 6:00 PM. A copy of the plan is available HERE.
In an effort to keep the Milan Community up to speed on important educational topics, Bryan Girbach, the Superintendent of Milan Area Schools, will be sharing updates following each School Board Meeting. These updates will provide information about educational topics at the district, county, state, and national levels.
These updates are available HERE.
The city of Milan, which encompasses a total of 3.4 square miles, was founded in 1831 and is located in the Southeastern Counties of Washtenaw and Monroe in the State of Michigan. Located between the cultural and commercial hubs of Ann Arbor, MI and Toledo, OH, Milan has both rural and suburban areas.
The Milan School District embraces nearly 90 square miles and serves households in both Washtenaw and Monroe Counties. The district is proud to note that its staff is made up of both veteran teachers and those new to the profession, all of whom are highly qualified. The four school buildings that comprise the Milan Area School District operate as schools-of-choice facilities and consistently enroll students from four surrounding counties. The district offers exceptional educational programs to approximately 2,000 students ranging from preschool age to grade twelve.
The community is proud of the scholastic and extracurricular accomplishments of its students. School activities serve as an important part of the overall student experience and provide social activities for the entire community.
