State Superintendent Dr. Michael Rice, eager to visit with teachers and students across the state, chose Dearborn as his first stop to make a virtual visit. 

The leader of the Michigan Department of Education visited two classrooms on April 27. The first was Ms. Alaouie’s 10th grade ELA class at Fordson where he was able to visit with students attending class in person and virtually.  The second stop was a fifth grade classroom at River Oaks with teacher Ms. Wolski.   Students there were in person. 

” We appreciate the time Dr. Rice took to interact with our teachers and students,” said Dearborn Schools Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko. “It was a great opportunity for our district, students and staff to have him visit. I am looking forward to a potential in-person visit in the future when we get out of the pandemic.  In addition, thank you to Dr. Rice for his outstanding leadership at the state level as he continues to advocate for our students during this most difficult time. “
