Michigan schools are trying to get back to business after a month in lockdown. The coronavirus pandemic has forced teachers and administrators to create a new strategy for guiding more than 1 million students through the end of the school year.

More than 1.5 million Michigan students will not return to K-12 school buildings the rest of the academic year due to the coronavirus pandemic and instead will learn remotely, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer ordered Thursday.
