The NYC DOE is attempting to help keep families on the same page throughout this hectic year

On Nov 24, Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza announced the launch of Parent University, an online resource that provides access to courses, live events and activities for those in the NYC school system.

“Our families have been so resilient this past year, and through Parent University we’re finding more ways to empower parents and guardians as partners,” Chancellor Richard Carranza said in a statement. “We know our families are busier than ever, and this platform is designed to meet parents where they are, whether that’s pre-recorded courses, or live virtual events. All families with children in all grades, from early childhood to adult education, are allowed to enroll in this multi-lingual tool so that they can have access to the latest news and updates as well as courses. 

Currently, NYC schools remain closed and all learning is being conducted remotely. Mayor Bill de Blasio provided a brief outline on Nov 23 that addressed what it would take to get students back in the classroom: more aggressive testing.
