New York City Schools Chancellor Meisha Porter has announced that there will be one more opt-in period for students who wish to move from remote learning to blended learning. See Chancellor Porter's letter here.
This opt-in period will run from March 24, 2021 until April 7, 2021. You can visit the Learning Preference Survey at https://www.nycenet.edu/surveys/learningpreference to select blended learning for your child.

You can also sign the COVID testing consent form for your child using your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) Account. Log into your NYC Schools Account at https://mystudent.nyc/. Once logged in, click your student’s name, click “Manage Account,” and then when a drop-down menu appears, click “Consent Forms.”

New York City has announced P-EBT, a program for families to buy food while students are learning from home. Information about the P-EBT program is available here.
NYC students can pick up 3 free meals daily from city-wide "grab and go" sites. A complete list of these sites can be found here.
In May, 2018, EBT was approved by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IB) to offer the IB Diploma Programme. According to the IB web site, students in this internationally recognized program will:
be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning
take part in programs of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world
become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language
be able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
