As the school year comes to an end, parents, students and teachers are wondering what school will look like come the fall.
Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza says a definitive — but tentative — plan should be unveiled at some point in July.
The city school system moved into a remote learning model after the pandemic forced schools to close in March.
Carranza says it's important to try to have in-person instruction to the extent that schools can, while also remaining adaptive to medical conditions.
Some possibilities that the Department of Education could take up include blended learning, rolling or phased starts and split schedules.
Carranza says all options are on the table.
“There’s a whole host of different variations. Anything you can think of we already started modeling and putting together what that would look like in our schools,” Carranza told NY1.
The DOE has also surveyed parents and teachers on their preference for remote learning or classroom learning. Those answers will factor in the final decision.
The schools chancellor joined Mornings On 1 via Skype.
