Learning Preference Survey for the 2020-2021 School Year

According to NYC DOE, families will be able to select blended learning or all-remote learning for the upcoming school year. Blended learning means students will be taught on-site in school for part of the week, and will attend school remotely on the other days of the week. All-remote learning means students will learn 100% remotely (online only). Families that initially choose all-remote will have the option to switch to blended learning at certain times throughout the school year.

Please fill out the survey below to let us know your preference (blended learning or 100% remote learning) by August 7.

The NYC Department of Education (DOE) is working on plans for re-opening school buildings in the 2020-21 school year. Please fill out the short, anonymous survey to help the DOE understand what is most important to you for when we return to school in the fall.

The survey is available in 10 languages. Please click on the link below to begin the survey.

Please read Chancellor Carranza’s letter below for more information regarding plans for the 2020-21 school year.

Letter from Chancellor Carranza

June 12, 2020

Dear Families,

I hope you are staying safe and healthy. We are heading towards the end of the school year, soon to close the chapter on an experience none of us could have imagined.

But while we are thinking about concluding one chapter, we are focused on the beginning of another: what the future of our schools will look like, and how we will come back in September for the 2020-21 school year. I am writing today with an important update and an opportunity to lend your voice to the planning for this fall.

You, your children, and all the staff at DOE have done an extraordinary job adjusting to a total transformation of education in the nation’s largest public school system. We must continue to center health and safety and be prepared to follow guidance issued by health experts and other important authorities as autumn approaches. Since we don’t know what the state of the coronavirus will be at that time, we must be ready for a number of options for teaching and learning. In addition to the risks posed by COVID-19 directly, we are acutely aware of the emergence of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C), a condition related to COVID-19 that has affected children in New York City as well as across the country and the world.

What Might Fall 2020 Look Like?

We have not yet made any firm decisions for what this fall will look like as we start the 2020-2021 school year. However, we believe that all options will need to take into account social distancing. We know that for many students, nothing can quite match full-time teaching and learning in a school building. Given the ongoing health risks related to COVID-19, we also need to prepare for a variety of educational models and approaches, including what I call blended learning. Blended learning means combining in-person and remote instruction to create a powerful educational experience where each mode of learning supports the other. Throughout it all, the goal remains to provide as much in-person learning as possible, and give every child the academic support they need while keeping them safe.

Lend Your Voice Through the Return to School 2020 Survey

There are many ways blended learning can operate, and we know every student and family has experienced remote learning differently. We want to hear from you about your preferences and concerns as we head into the 2020- 2021 school year. We have created a short survey for both families and students—please take a moment to fill it out and share your thoughts by Monday, June 22. The survey is anonymous and should take about 7 minutes to complete. It’s available in 9 languages at schools.nyc.gov/returntoschool2020, and those without the ability to complete it online can do so by calling 311. Thank you in advance for taking the time to again give us your feedback: it will help us to better serve you.

Working together, we will build a strong, just, safe, and successful future for our schools and our City.

Sincerely,

Richard A. Carranza
Chancellor
New York City Department of Education

MySchools Account

Good news! Your child’s middle school offer is now available in your MySchools account at

 www.myschools.nyc

A printed copy will also be mailed to your home address shortly. If you are happy with your offer, there is nothing further you have to do.

Beginning the week of April 13th, you will be able to see:

1. The waitlists your child is on
2. Check your position on each waitlist
3. Add yourself on waitlists of schools you wish to apply to
4. Remove yourself from waitlists of schools you DO NOT wish to attend

For example, if you received your third choice on your application as your main offer, you will be on the waitlist for your first and second choice.

If you did not set up a MySchools account, I have contacted you to let you know what school your child received as their main offer.

You can also check out the Middle School section on the www.schools.nyc.gov website for more information.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Brody via the Remind App (Send a text to 81010 and text @47bd89), in the google classroom (code: thuf7v2) and/or at my email at tbrody2@schools.nyc.gov.
