REMOTE LEARNING UPDATE: Please scroll down for important information about Remote Learning at MBCC during the current COVID 19 Emergency Shutdown.
Many parents and students are asking about scheduling for the coming school year. Unfortunately, due to the closure, there are many more questions than we have answers for. We have updated all the links above with information about our programs at MBCC. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

For now, here’s the powerpoint presentation that I’ve been sharing with students to discuss the Career and Technical Education options available at the Michael Berry Career Center. Make sure to explore each program in the Black Menu Bar above.
Students and Parents. As part of the Dearborn Continuity of Learning Plan, students were graded for Remote Learning work assigned since the March 13th shutdown. Further information and the Appeals Process are in the document below.
Next year we are offering TWO sections of AP Economics for students who want a little challenge and are willing to do the “college level” work (and get graded on a 5-point scale). It is offered 3rd hour in the AM and 4th hour in the PM (perfect for students who have 3 AM classes and a 5th/6th hour CoOp or Dual Enrollment). If you think you might be interested, email Dr. Bayerl (email@example.com) ASAP to see if we can make it work on your schedule. Course descriptions are below
AP MACROECONOMICS (Social Studies Elective)
AP Macroeconomics is an introductory college-level course that focuses on the principles that apply to an economic system as a whole. The course places particular emphasis on the study of national income and price-level determination; it also develops students’ familiarity with economic performance measures, the financial sector, stabilization policies, economic growth, and international economics. Students learn to use graphs, charts, and data to analyze, describe, and explain economic concepts
AP MICROECONOMICS (Social Studies Elective)
AP Microeconomics is an introductory college-level course that focuses on the principles of economics that apply to the functions of individual economic decision-makers.

Students learn to use graphs, charts, and data to analyze, describe, and explain economic concepts
I am currently working on the 2020-2021 MBCC schedule. If you have NOT done your course requests for next year yet, please email your counselor (and copy me) ASAP so we can save you a space in the class you want!
Welcome students and parents! Even though our building is closed, the learning continues. Our governor and legislature has required we transition to an online “remote learning” plan for the remainder of the school year. Our plan has been submitted to the county and accepted…and starts TODAY! I’ve posted the details below, and attached a handy copy you can print out, but the staff at MBCC thought it would be fun to share this fun little video with you outlining the basics. Hope to “see” you all soon! We miss you!
Create and present two (2) live/recorded lessons per week for each class.
Schedule and instructions for joining can be found on teachers blog.
Students are required to attend a minimum of 60% of these sessions to earn credit for the class and must attend 75% or more to earn a grade of “A” for the semester.

Remember, teachers are monitoring school email all week as well.
Teachers are required to make “live” contact with students every week. If you students are attending the remote learning lessons, they will meet that requirement. If not, teachers will be using a variety of methods to reach out to students (online hangouts/chats, email, phone, etc.)
