COVID-19: NYC Quote of the Day 2020-09-01

Tuesday, September 1, 2020, NYC Mayor de Blasio - Remote Learning September 16, Blended Learning September 21

The normal school year, educators, staff are in their buildings by the day after Labor Day and that will be true here as well, Tuesday, September 8th. The instructional days were slated to begin September 10th. We're going to hold that for a few days. We're going to allow preparation days for our educators and staff to get ready under these unprecedented circumstances. So, September 10th and 11th, September 14th and 15th will be days devoted to preparation, to really making sure that blended learning can work for everybody, that everyone understands their role, everyone has had a chance to practice together and coordinate. There's been an opportunity to communicate with families. And then starting on the 16th of September, we will have a three-day transitional period, only three days. For those three days, instruction will begin remotely for all students. During that transitional period, there will be instruction for students, but there'll also be additional preparation for educators and staff. And then on September 21st, Monday, the school buildings open full strength, we go to blended learning as has been described previously.
