Berrien Springs Schools Plan Tutoring Center

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) – Berrien Springs Public Schools officials plan to open a tutoring center for online high school students in Grand Rapids.

The Virtual Learning Center will be staffed with local teachers and offer students individual workstations. The program will start in late January and is currently enrolling students.

The Grand Rapids Planning Commission approved the district’s special land use request in November. Officials expect initial enrollment in the blended learning program to be around 100 students. They will receive a laptop and wireless Internet connection to use at home.

The program currently serves 1,100 students in 11 centers in locations including Ionia and Greenville. The new center will partner with at least one area charter school and students will graduate with a Berrien Spring diploma.
