Community Education Council 3, a parent group that resembles a school board, is holding a meeting on Monday to fight a Department of Education rule that would limit the periods when parents can decide to opt back in to hybrid learning from all-remote.
The DOE has said it will no longer allow parents to opt in once every quarter. Now, they’ll get only one chance for the rest of the school year. They’ll have to decide to send their children back in a window from Nov. 2 to Nov. 15. Parents and politicians have begun to push back, urging the mayor to allow parents another opt-in opportunity in January.
Many parents who chose remote-only learning already adjusted their entire work and family schedules for the fall term expecting to later decide on blended-learning for the spring term, an are rightfully outraged that the DOE has once again pulled the rug out from under them. 1/2
