BLENDED LEARNING OPT-IN
To best meet these objectives, the process outlined below will be the only opt-in window for families this school year, through the last day of the 2020-2021 school year. We believe that this best meets the needs of students, families, teachers, and school leaders as we establish strong routines and structures for learning. As such, the process for blended learning opt-in is as follows:
Monday, November 2 – Sunday, November 15: Blended Learning Opt-In Window for Families
Families requesting to change from 100% remote to blended learning should complete and submit the Learning Preference survey during this window.
Schools will be able to review individual students’ updated learning preference on a rolling basis during this window.
During this time, Superintendents, Executive Superintendents and Central DOE will begin supporting schools to ensure as many students as possible are accommodated for blended learning.
Weeks of November 30 - Group A & December 7 - Group B: Students Begin In-Person Learning
We will also be sharing this information widely with families and we ask that you please share the information with families as well. Updates can be found at https://www.schools.nyc.gov/school-year-20-21/return-to-school-2020.

Programming Model 4A
Two in-person groups (Group A & Group B), one remote group (Group D). Each in-person group (Group A & Group B) receives a week of in-person instruction every other week with remote learning during the non-attending weeks.
Group D (every day remote) group will consist of students who opt out of in-person instruction.
"Due to the increasing numbers of students opting for remote learning in the recent days, changes are being made. Student groupings and teacher assignments may be changed to ensure all students will be assigned the proper grouping/teacher and to best ensure maximum social distancing and safety. Your patience and flexibility in these uncertain times are greatly appreciated. I understand the frustration this may cause some of you. Please know that the administration is working around the clock to organize and set up the 2020-2021 school year for all students - blended and remote. Once groupings are reorganized, we will notify you of your child's grouping. Again, thank you for your cooperation and continued support.
We believe that all students can learn and are entitled to be provided with the best education possible. To this end, we endeavor to foster an educational environment that takes into account the needs, interests and abilities of the individual student.
We recognize our responsibility to promote positive awareness among our student body and develop those educational skills which will maximize and enhance the potential for student academic achievement in all curriculum areas.
Further, we believe it our responsibility to prepare students so that upon exiting school, they will be equipped with the necessary academic and vocational skills to become successful, productive citizens in our society.
Finally, we recognize that this should be accomplished in partnership between home, school and community.
