NCS Learning and Response Plans


NCS Learning and Response Plans

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, Niles Community Schools (NCS) reopened its schools and operations under the guidance of Governor Whitmer’s Executive Orders and MI Safeschools Roadmap. After schools reopened, additional and/or modified requirements were placed on Michigan school districts by legislators, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and Berrien County Health Department (BCHD) officials. Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) placed additional rules and requirements relative to workplace safety. Along with the Orders and Rules executed by these governing bodies, guidelines and interpretations of these Orders and Rules were provided by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) and the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA). In partnership with BCHD, Berrien Regional Educational Agency (BRESA), other Berrien County School Districts, and the BCS Athletic Conference. Niles Community Schools has provided in-person instruction and extracurricular activities in accordance with these Rules and Orders since the beginning of the school year with extremely low transmission rates. 

Although requirements have continually changed during the school year, NCS has remained committed to following all Orders and Rules. The most recent guidelines from MDHHS can be found here. State of Michigan Guidelines for Operating Schools Safely

District Note: The most current Orders, Rules, and legislation will be followed and will supersede language found in all submitted, approved, adopted and published district and buildings plans.
