2020-2021 Family Guide

As our country grapples with the complexities of the COVID-19 pandemic, New York City public schools are stopping at nothing to create an education that puts your children’s health, safety, and emotional well-being first. An education that creates a new standard of excellence for blended and fully remote learning. An education that will prepare your children to thrive—today, tomorrow, next year, and for the rest of their lives.

The 2020–21 Family Guide provides some information on what that teaching and learning will look like this school year. You will find universal expectations for how our schools will support every single student every single school day—whether they are participating in fully remote or blended learning.
