US: Cuomo clears careful reopening of New York schools

作者:admin 2020-08-08

Children in New York state, including in the largest school district in the United States, will be allowed to return to classrooms for the start of the new school year, New York's governor said on Friday, citing the state's success in battling the coronavirus pandemic.

The announcement by Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo clears the way for schools to offer at least some days of in-person classes, alongside remote learning.

"Everywhere in the state, every region is below the threshold that we established," Cuomo said during a conference call with reporters. "If there's a spike in the infection rate, if there's a matter of concern in the infection rate, then we can revisit."

Many New York school districts have planned to start the year with students in school buildings only a few days a week while learning at home the rest of the time.

In the largest school district in the US, New York City's more than one million public school students had their last day of in-class instruction on March 13, just as waves of sick people were beginning to hit city hospitals. All schools statewide were closed by March 18.

The city's mayor, Bill de Blasio, has been saying since the spring that his goal for fall (autumn) was to bring students back on schedule, with as much classroom time as possible while still allowing for social distancing.

That plan has looked exceedingly ambitious as other large school systems have backed away from in-person instruction in recent weeks.
