As more students return to school, New York City unveils ‘2021 Student Achievement Plan’


NEW YORK (WABC) — Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York City Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza presented a 2021 Student Achievement Plan.

The plan aims to provide support for the city’s children and their academic and emotional issues caused by the pandemic. It also sets out to give extra support to teachers.

1) Get a baseline of what ground we lost

2) Increasing high-quality digital curriculum available for every school

3) Launching a one-stop digital learning hub

4) Deepening professional development

5) Expanding “Parent University”

6) Confronting the trauma and mental health crisis faced by students

Meantime, District 75 schools for students with special needs reopen for in-person learning in New York City.

The district includes more than 20,000 students.

Grades K through 5, Pre-K, and 3-K reopened on Monday with strict COVID testing policies.

There’s still no return date set for middle and high school students.

The city says the testing in public schools has shown much better results than that in the general population.
