As school board meetings in the Detroit district go virtual during the coronavirus pandemic, Chalkbeat Detroit wants to make it easier to keep track of district decisions.

We’re launching a text messaging service to help keep you updated on the most important school board decisions every month, so you can stay informed regardless of whether you’re able to attend board meetings virtually.

Want to know if the Detroit school board approved the new school year’s budget? Or an update on efforts to equip all students with devices and internet access? Sign up for our monthly texts below, and let us know if you have any questions about Detroit schools. We’re listening.

The Detroit school district hosts its monthly virtual board meetings at 5:30 pm on Tuesdays, and you can find the monthly schedule here.
