Are the classes that MDOC inmates take also cancelled?

The Department has developed plans to continue offering recommended programming in a safe manner at all facilities.  While individual programming groups may need to be paused due to COVID-19, safeguards are in place to promptly restart and complete programming to minimize the impact on participants.  The department continues to place prisoners into programming based on their parole board eligibility date and is monitoring programming waitlists statewide on a weekly basis.  College classes will begin returning to a face-to-face format in the Fall of '21 at many sites, but distance learning may continue at some sites for the upcoming semester.
