Learning Preference Form
As you know, last week the DOE announced preliminary guidance for principals to plan for the 2020-2021 school year.

This fall, NYC schools will offer a combination of in-person and remote learning.  

Parents can choose from two options: 

1. 100% Remote Learning (all online, from home). OR 

2. Combination of In-Person and Remote Learning: Students can follow their school’s schedule, a mix of in-person days at school and remote learning days from home. To choose this option, no action is needed: the school will be in touch about its schedule and programming plans in the coming weeks.  

Parents should make their choices by completing this form by August 7, 2020.  If you or a parent you know is having difficulties completing this survey, please call 311.

If you chose 100% Remote Learning but want to change your child’s preference back to Blended Learning, you should fill out the form again by August 7.  After August 7, any family who chose 100% Remote Learning will have the option to change back to Blended Learning at a few specific times during the school year.
