NYC Mayor: Strongest School Reopening Plan in Safest American City of New York

NYC Mayor: Strongest School Reopening Plan in Safest American City of New York

During his press conference today, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chanellor Richard Carranza announced revealed New York City’s Back to School Scorecard – a chart pitting us against the rest of the world’s approach towards reopening of their education systems.

A graphic of the chart can be seen near the bottom of this page.

  • As per that which was provided today, the city’s re-opening threshold is 3% compared with WHO’s (World Health Organization) 5%.
  • Masks would be required for all grades and teachers – stricter than WHO’s requirements and comparable to that of Japan and South Korea.
  • Testing would be encouraged of and available to all staff – a standard which surpasses Europe except for Luxembourg.
  • Contact tracing would math that of Japan and Germany.
  • Blended learning wherein families are allowed to opt into remote-only learning whenever they should so wish is more flexible than that of South Korea and Singapore.
  • Classrooms would be smaller with great social distancing as opposed to WHO’s less stringent requirements and matching European countries like Switzerland.
  • There’ll be an option for outdoor learning similar to that of Italy, Denmark and Norway.

“With our record-low infection rate, New York City is the safest major city in America,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “We’ve looked at what’s worked across the globe to create a plan for reopening schools that’s the absolute gold standard. My message to parents and our school communities cannot be clearer: we are taking every possible precaution to bring our kids back safely.”

“In a constantly changing public health landscape, one thing has always been clear: we’ll take every precaution to keep our schools safe,” said Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza. “We’re going above and beyond measures taken by the rest of the country in order to provide in-person instruction this fall, and we won’t compromise health and safety at any point.”
