Chancellor: Opt in period for blended learning runs from Nov. 2 to Nov. 15 only
Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza announced Monday that the Department of Education is carving out time for parents to enroll students in blended learning.
They say there will be an "opt-in" period, which will be the only time students can enroll for blended learning.
It will run from Nov. 2 to Nov. 15 to get students back into the classroom physically.
"Now that we've been able to show how our schools are working, it's time for an opt-in period. It's time to give parents and kids a chance to come back into schools if they are all remote right now. The opt-in period will begin next week and go through the 15th,”says Mayor de Blasio.
There is a form parents must fill out during the opt-in period if they want their child to split their time between home and school building. The form can be found on the DOE’s website.
