Well, our second week of the new semester is in the books. We are having a few technology issues, especially for the newer students, but the good news is that 95% of these glitches can be fix within 24 hours. The key is for your student to take a screen shot of the error message and email me at so I can either work with the APEX or Canvas technology department to get the issue fixed in a timely matter.

During the month of February the State of Michigan will be tracking our 2-way contacts which will determine funding for each of our students. Please help us achieve our BVL goal of 100% 2-way contact completion.

BVL is currently in the planning process for April State Testing. We have not set up any specific dates or times, but be on the look out for more details.

Best Regards,

Kevin Keilitz
