Virtual Learning

Southfield Public Schools is welcoming our students back to 100% in-person learning for this upcoming school year.

We have followed all guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and the federal government related to health and safety measures, universal masking, frequent cleaning and sanitization schedules, air purifiers, etc. We have systems in place to screen visitors and a dashboard on our website with up-to-date information and data related to our safety mitigation measures.

In-person instruction provides rigorous and robust opportunities for students to develop relationships, engage with their teachers and peers in meaningful instruction while developing social emotional skills that transcend throughout their educational journey. All Southfield Public School staff are certified, qualified, and prepared to provide high quality instruction and accelerated learning tools and resources for all of our students.

We are prepared to welcome your student/s to 100% in-person learning and expect a successful, safe, and productive school year.


Based on our parent enrollment survey for 2021-2022, only 1% of respondents requested the virtual option; therefore, SPS is not offering virtual learning for 2021-2022. Southfield Public Schools offered the VLAC virtual option with Oakland Schools to our parents for the entire 2021-2022 school year, but at this point, this program reached student capacity and closed enrollment.

Grades K-8

The Virtual Learning Academy Consortium has provided the District with 25 virtual spots for students in grades K-8 for families needing the virtual option for the 2021-2022 school. Please contact for more information.
