The change from a planned September 10th in-person school reopening comes after weeks of mounting pressure from educators who insisted they need more time to prepare, and the escalating possibility of a strike mounted by the United Federation of Teachers, the powerful union representing tens of thousands of NYC public school teachers.

The delay in reopening buildings will allow for more instructional preparation and to allow more testing for the students, teachers and staff who will be inside school buildings
