EDITOR’S NOTE: This post has been updated with new information concerning the July 28, August 12, and August 27 sessions, including registration links.


These days, it seems like everyone we talk to has the same question for us:

“What will the 2020–2021 school year look like?”

Beginning Thursday, July 16, the NYC Department of Education is hosting virtual Family and Student Information Sessions regarding the start of the 2020-21 school year.

During these online sessions, we will summarize our recently released reopening plans and discuss what a return to City school buildings can look like in the fall, and you’ll get a chance to let us know what’s on your mind about City schools next year.

Registration for these sessions is completely free, and all sessions will be available in English, Spanish, and Chinese. The first session took place on Thursday, July 16 — other session dates include:

  • Tuesday, July 28 (6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.)
  • Wednesday, August 12 (6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.)
  • Thursday, August 27 (6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.)

To sign up for any of these sessions, please visit our LearnDOE Family and Student Information Session webpage.

In addition to these virtual sessions, schools will host parent meetings to ensure that families receive critical, school-specific information and updates throughout the summer—keep an eye on your email inbox and/or mailbox for any important messages from City schools.

For more information about the DOE’s information sessions and reopening plans in general, please visit our Return to School 2020 webpage.

Hope to see you at our information sessions on July 28, August 12, and August 27register TODAY!
