Update on Blended Learning Opt-In Window

We want to share information from the NYC Department of Education on the blended learning opt-in window for families. The process outlined below will be the only opt-in window for families this school year, through the last day of the 2020-2021 school year. 

Monday, November 2 – Sunday, November 15: Blended Learning Opt-In Window for Families 

  • Families requesting to change from 100% remote to blended learning should complete and submit the Learning Preference survey during this window.  
  • Schools will be able to review individual students’ updated learning preference on a rolling basis during this window.  
  • During this time, Superintendents, Executive Superintendents and Central DOE will begin supporting schools to ensure as many students as possible are accommodated for blended learning. 
Weeks of November 30 & December 7:  Students Begin In-Person Learning 

We will be sharing additional information on this process as it becomes available from the NYC DOE. Updates can be found at
