Additional update from the NYC Department of Education. They have created a Learning Preference Survey - https://www.nycenet.edu/surveys/learningpreference - which is now OPEN. Families, have until August 7th to choose from two options:
#1 - 100% Remote Learning: If you choose this option, you are choosing to have their child learn 100% remotely (all online, from home)
#2 - Combination of In-Person and Remote Learning: Child can follow their school's schedule, a mix of in-person days at school and remote learning days from home.
Only families opting for 100% Remote Learning need to complete this survey. Families who chose 100% Remote Learning and submit a form but change their preference prior to August 7th, can do so by resubmitting the survey. After August 7th, any family who chose 100% Remote Learning will have the option to change back to Blended Learning at a few specific times during the school year.
