Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Dear Real Estate One Academy Students,

We have all been impacted by the pandemic of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). Governor Whitmer announced all Michigan K-12 schools will be closed until Monday April 13th, due to the increase in confirmed coronavirus cases in the state.

The Real Estate One Academy (REO Academy) is taking the following actions:

1. As of Monday, March 16th on-site classes in all locations will be suspended and rescheduled. Our faculty and administration are awaiting the final approvals for our hybrid model of distance learning to assist in the timely completion of the required hours for Pre-License instruction. (announcements will be posted on our website schedules when available) There is no penalty for rescheduling up to a year from the start date, and you may reschedule/delay the start or completion without cost.

2. Any classes offered by the Real Estate One Academy (post-licensing and Continuing Education) that are either off-site or held in our Southfield location are also suspended and will be rescheduled. The website will be updated daily with notifications, cancellations, scheduling updates and announcements.

3. The Real Estate One Academy will evaluate the scheduling and continuing of these suspensions on a weekly basis. Offerings of distance learning, online participation and webinars will also be posted once approved through the appropriate agencies.

4. The Real Estate One Academy is proud to provide learning opportunities that are free of discriminatory and bullying behaviors. The US Department of Education has notified institutions about an increasing number of news reports regarding stereotyping, harassment, and bullying directed at persons perceived to be of Chinese American, Italian or Asian descent, including students. We maintain a zero tolerance policy for discriminatory, harassing, and/or bullying behaviors.

Communication is an important component for your safety as well as your success. During these unprecedented times we remain committed to support your real estate education goals. If you are a registered student, all attempts will be made to communicate through email, phone calls and postings on our website. Please feel free to email our office or call our staff if you have any further questions.

The web resources below provide important information regarding COVID-19. Further, your local health department is another important resource to contact if you have questions or concerns.

The staff and administration of The Real Estate One Academy is committed to serving our students during this time and we appreciate all that everyone is doing to create a safer environment within our communities.

Sincerely,

The Real Estate One Academy Director, Instructors and Staff
