School officials are revealing their plans for the next school year beginning this fall.
Mayor Eric Adams and Schools Chancellor David Banks unveiled the creation of the Division of Inclusive and Accessible Learning (DIAL). They say DIAL will focus on supporting multilingual learners and children with disabilities.
The mayor says the program will have a $750 million budget and will be comprised of 1,300 staff members. They'll be tasked with expanding inclusive programs.
Along with DIAL, they also announced a new math initiative called NYC Solves and describe it as an illustrative math curriculum.
"Our classrooms will be focused on deeply understanding math concepts, connecting these concepts to each other, and applying these concepts to the real world," says Chancellor Banks.
Those programs will begin this fall.
