JUST THE NEWS-
New York City schools may reopen in September, but students will participate in a combination of in-person and remote learning as a consequence of the pandemic.
While all families will have the opportunity to opt for full-time remote academics, those who wish to send their children back to the classroom can do so, albeit for less than five days per week, officials said.
In order to facilitate social distancing the plan is to have smaller groups of students attend school just a few days each week—those pupils will engage in remote academics the remaining days.
The number of days in the classroom per week will vary depending on the school and the attendance model it selects but will allow students to attend in-person courses between one and three days per week.
The plan is contingent upon the conditions related to the coronavirus pandemic and will proceed “assuming the city continues to meet all necessary COVID-19 public health thresholds,” according to a press release.
