PLAINWELL, Mich.—In accordance with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ recommendations designed to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), all programs at the Michigan Career and Technical Institute (MCTI) will be cancelled/postponed beginning Monday, March 16 through Sunday, April 5.

MCTI is operated by Michigan Rehabilitation Services, which is a part of the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity.
