Important Update on In-Person Learning Start Dates

Please read this important update from our school chancellor, Richard Carranza:


I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. I am writing to you today with an important update on the start of school.    

For months we have, together, been preparing to reopen our school buildings. Our city’s infection rate has positioned us as the only major city in the country able to welcome our children back to our schools for in-person learning.    As we began our preparations, we made a pledge that we would put health and safety first. And we made plans to make rich, high-quality learning experiences available to all students, regardless of where they are learning from. That is what we have done – and we must continue to live up to our promises as we prepare to open our buildings to students and families.  Toward those ends, we have worked with our labor partners on a new staggered start for in-person learning at the beginning of this school year.  Children who are enrolled in fully remote programs will still begin full-day instruction on Monday, September 21. However, children in blended learning will be learning remotely until their in-person start date as outlined here:  


Blended Learning Students Enrolled In: 

In-Person Learning Begins On: 

Grades 3K and Pre-K 

(in any school type/grade configuration)

·      High Schools (Grades 9-12) 

·      Secondary Schools (Grades 6-12) 

·      Transfer Schools, Adult Education, Evening Schools, Alternate Learning Centers 

Thursday 10/1 

Schools with Other Grade Configurations: 

Students enrolled in K-2 and K-3 Schools 

Tuesday 9/29 

Students enrolled in K-12 Schools 

Tuesday 9/29 


We know that our schools and families are eager to reconnect in person – I know I am excited for that as well, and have heard that from so many families. We believe this extra time will help make sure that all schools and all educators are best positioned to deliver a strong, safe, and supportive environment for teaching and learning to take place. 

I always say that New York City has the best teachers and staff in the world, and nothing will ever change that – no matter when, where, and how we are teaching and serving our students and their families.

Family Learning Bridges survey: Fall child care needs

Dear Families,

As the New York City Department of Education resumes in-person schooling this fall, most schools and early childhood programs will operate on a blended learning model. This means that each week, students will have some school days in person, and some school days remotely.  Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade on days when they are scheduled for remote learning. If you are interested in the Learning Bridges program, please complete this survey at .

The Learning Bridges programs will:


  • Be operated by community-based organizations and other partners
  • Provide opportunities for children to connect to their remote learning activities
  • Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities
  • Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools


You can complete the survey even if you do not yet know your child’s school schedule. The survey is meant to assess interest; this is not a formal application. More information will be shared by the Department of Education (children in 3-K and pre-K) or the Department of Youth & Community Development (children in grades K-8) about a potential placement in the coming weeks. Programs will become available on a rolling basis beginning at the start of school.

You can also call 311 for support in completing the survey. Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to sharing more information with you soon.

Update on School Opening

 Brooklyn Collegiate has adopted Chancellor-recommended "Model Two" which proposes:

  • an option for either remote or blended learning
  • an ABCD Model-  a creation of four distinct groups of students
  • a three-week rotation of this model

*Note:  Group designation and programmed classes will be forthcoming (on or around August 26th)

See document linked below for a visual explanation    Model 2 with Rotation on Thurs and Fri.docx

This fall, your child’s school will offer a combination of in-person and remote learning. You can choose from two options:

2. Combination of In-Person and Remote Learning: Your child can follow their school’s schedule, a mix of in-person days at school and remote learning days from home. Your school will be in touch about its schedule and programming plans in the coming weeks. Please visit the Return to School 2020 pages on the website for more information.

Changing Preferences

  • If you chose 100% Remote Learning but want to change your child’s preference back to Blended Learning, complete this form again by August 7. 
  • After August 7, any family who chose 100% Remote Learning will have the option to change back to Blended Learning at a few specific times during the school year.
