Cuomo Clears Schools To Open This Fall

first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) JHS Stock ImageALBANY — New York State public schools have been cleared by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to reopen this fall.“If there’s a spike in the infection rate, then we can revisit it…but for planning purposes, we can reopen,” Cuomo said during a phone conference Friday morning.Cuomo said in the final analysis, school reopening is not up to him.“Parents have to be included and believe the plan makes sense. Teachers have to be included and believe the plan makes sense. They are the ultimate determination,” Cuomo said. “Every region is well below our COVID infection limit, therefore all school districts are authorized to open,” Cuomo said Friday. “If the infection rate spikes, the guidance will change accordingly. School districts are required to submit plans to NYS for review.”Cuomo previously said schools can begin in-person learning only once the region has entered its final phase of reopening. Cuomo also said that the daily infection rate in that region needed to remain at 5 percent or lower over a 14-day average.In July, Cuomo asked all school districts and local governments to submit a reopening plan to his administration.last_img read more
