Seat Time Waiver
Michigan students in grades 6-12 have the opportunity to take more than two online courses per semester/trimester - including a full-time online schedule - through the GenNET Seat Time Waiver (STW) program. In addition, students in grades K-5 can participate in GenNET's K-5 Seat Time Waiver program if they are enrolled in a school district in Genesee County or any county contiguous to Genesee County. Courses must be enrolled through the GenNET Portal. Please contact GenNET staff at (810) 591-4401 for details.
Section 21f of the State School Aid Act generated many requests for support. With input from MDE, MASSP, MEMSPA, MASA, MAISA, MASB, MACUL, Michigan ASCD, and REMC representatives, MVU identified, developed, and collected an initial set of practical resources - a Tool Kit - to support schools as they implement expanded online learning options for students under Section 21f. The majority of resources in this Tool Kit are PDFs of sample letters and forms and draft policies. Each PDF contains a link to a Word document that you can modify to suit local needs. Also included are individual informational documents that can be used as references, as well as slide presentation material. You'll also find a new interactive version of the popular MVU Online Learner Readiness Rubric that can be used to create a scoring record for each student.
