Dear Koinonia families,
So many of you began the homeschooling journey with the simple desire to use the freedom within Michigan to educate your children for their future and to shepherd their heart for eternity. Now many new families are also choosing to home educate. They want to influence their children’s lives and fear what is playing out in the public setting. In each case, families desire the freedom to choose what best fits them.
We know that you have questions about Koinonia education in the fall. We wish we had answers and a detailed plan of what will happen, but the basic fact is that we simply do not know yet. Things are changing rapidly. Just when we get a grasp on data, or feel trends are moving in a certain direction, the goal posts shift and new executive orders are issued.
Koinonia’s goal has always been to meet in class, but how this will look is yet to be determined. The board continues to collaborate and will release a plan for the coming year on August 17th. The drop date for a full refund on classes has been pushed back to August 21st allowing families to prayerfully decide what is the best educational plan for their children.
Continual change makes developing a plan difficult and at times frustrating. There are many scenarios administration and the board must consider. Please pray for us as we prayerfully consider the direction God is leading Koinonia.
Seeking God’s direction,
The Board of Directors and Staff of Koinonia appreciate your patience and flexibility as we think creatively about supporting families in their desire to homeschool while complying with governmental regulations related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In regard to the start of the 2020-21 school year, below is our current plan as of July 1, 2020. This plan is subject to change as we abide by governmental requirements.
We hope this generalized plan assists you with making a decision about Koinonia classes this coming school year. We will update this plan and provide more detail as we get closer to the beginning of the school year. We consider it a privilege to partner with you in your child’s education.
