NYC schools once again delay the start of the 2020-2021 term for most students

Here's the latest update.

The NYC DOE is once again delaying the start of the 2020-2021 academic term. 

During today's press briefing, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that only 3K, pre-K and District 75 schools will begin in-person learning on Monday, Sept 21—the date in which all NYC schools were set to begin blended learning. K–5 and K–8 schools will reopen for in-person learning on Sept 29. Middle schools and high schools will reopen for in-person learning on Oct 1. 

However, remote instruction will begin citywide on Monday for those whose in-person start dates have been delayed, according to NBC.

The Mayor is expected to speak more on this change today. As soon as more information becomes available, we'll be sure to update the 2020-2021 school calendar accordingly. In the meantime, explore free tutoring options from the NYPL and after-school programs such as virtual classes, pods and more.
