New York City schools will only offer in-person learning in fall, mayor says

New York City's school system, the largest in the country, will offer no remote learning option in the fall, requiring all of its 1.1 million students to attend classes in person after more than a year of disruption caused by the pandemic, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday.

In the current school year, a hybrid weekly schedule involves students having a mix of in-person and remote learning. Most parents have also opted to keep their children home for remote learning five days a week.

 

Neither of those options will be offered in September, when the new school year begins, De Blasio said.

“It's time for everyone to come back, it's time for us all to be together, time to do things the way they were meant to be done," the mayor said at a briefing.
