    Dear Families:

    We want to share more information and guidance on the blended learning opt-in window for families.

    At this time, the only opt-in window for families to choose blended learning this school year, through the last day of the 2020-2021 school year is:

    Monday, November 2 – Sunday, November 15

    Families requesting to change from 100% remote to blended learning should complete and submit the Learning Preference survey during this window.

    o Schools will be able to review individual students’ updated learning preference on a rolling basis during this window.

    o 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.

    Students Begin In-Person Learning beginning the weeks of November 30 & December 7. Each family will be informed of the learning platform change. Please note, a change in learning platform will likely result in a change of program and a change of teachers.

    The DOE 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.
