Choosing Fully Remote Learning

Please complete the NYC DOE Survey if you are choosing 100% Remote Learning. This means your child would learn 100% remotely (all online, from home). Remote learning includes live interaction with teachers every day, and every class includes live instruction.

Learning Bridges Program

As the New York City Department of Education resumes in-person schooling this fall, most schools and early childhood programs will operate on a blended learning model. This means that each week, students will have some school days in person, and some school days remotely. Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade on days when they are scheduled for remote learning.
 

The Learning Bridges programs will: 

  • Be operated by community-based organizations and other partners 

  • Provide opportunities for children to connect to their remote learning activities 

  • Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities 

  • Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools
     

You can complete this survey even if you do not yet know your child’s school schedule. The survey is meant to assess interest; this is not a formal application. Programs will become available on a rolling basis beginning at the start of school. You can also call 311 for support in completing the survey.
