COVID-19: NYC Quote of the Day 2020-07-29

Wednesday, July 29, 2020, NYC Mayor de Blasio - Individual Plans for 1,800 Schools

Question: My question has to do with schools. Our understanding is the DOE has asked for an extension to submit its plans for each of the 1,800 school buildings until August 14th. That doesn't seem to leave a whole lot of time between August 14th and the scheduled first day of school, September 10th, for parents to plan. I'm wondering if you can address that and what you make of that?

Mayor: Yeah, that's not my understanding. My understanding is that the main plan for the whole school system is due on Friday and it will be submitted on Friday. Now, individual plans for 1,800 schools, they will be submitted two weeks later. My understanding is school districts around the state are doing the same thing, submitting the individual school plans after they submit their district plans. We're going to get parents their specific schedules in about two weeks, so everyone knows exactly what they're dealing with, has time to make arrangements.
