Return to School 2020 Resources

Update for Families on Fall Learning Options

Please remember you must notify the Department of Education by Friday, August 7th if you intend to choose all-remote learning for the upcoming school year. Visit the DOE Letters from the Chancellor website to find a letter sharing more information about both remote and blended learning options.

Return to School Learning Preference Survey

This fall, your child’s school will offer a combination of in-person and remote learning. You can choose from two options:

1. 100% Remote Learning: Opt in to have your child learn 100% remotely (all online, from home). To choose this option for your child, fill out and submit this learning preference form. If you are having difficulties completing this form online, call 311. Deadline to fill out the form is August 7.

OR

2. Combination of In-Person and Remote Learning: Your child can follow their school’s schedule, a mix of in-person days at school and remote learning days from home. To choose this option, no action is needed: your school will be in touch about its schedule and programming plans in the coming weeks.

 

Please visit the Return to School 2020 pages on the website for more information.

  • Learn at Home App for DOE-Issued iPads

A new app, called Learn at Home, is now available on all DOE-issued iPads. The Learn at Home app is helpful in supporting students’ remote-learning needs—giving parents, students, and staff the ability to stay connected and informed through quick access to student accounts, other learning apps and technical support. The app provides students with links to all the tools they need to attend class, complete assignments, and track their progress. The Learn at Home app features include: Student apps in one place; Easy access to schedules and homework; Easy-to-find links to DOE tech support; Additional learning resources by grade level; and A notification system for DOE news and information.

Note that the Learn at Home app is only available on DOE-issued iPads at this time. Students who enabled app notifications on their devices can receive updates about DOE news and information. For questions, email LearnAtHome@schools.nyc.gov.
