While it’s impossible to predict what September will look like, there is no question that next year will look different. Our families are our partners as we chart this new path forward, and we heard from 300,000 of them—in addition to 110,000 students—in a citywide survey on reopening our school buildings. Families must select 100% remote or blended in-school learning for the Fall by completing the survey no later than August 7, 2020.
