Schools Chancellor David Banks outlined a plan to combat the rise in antisemitism and Islamophobia in New York City public schools.
The plan includes additional support for classroom-facing principals and teachers as well as expanded and updated training with input from the interfaith community.
The Department of Education will also be clarifying its approach to discipline, saying bullying or bigoted actions in school must be met with clear consequences.
The department will also be offering a series of anti-discrimination workshops to parent leaders starting in February.
