Virtual or Remote Instruction Plan - September 2022
Chief School Administrator: Dr. Vincent Caputo
All districts required to “annually submit its proposed program for virtual or remote instruction (plan) to the Commissioner of Education.”
- Board of Education needs to approve on September 27
- Due to County office by September 30
- Must be posted on website
This plan would be implemented during a district closure lasting more than three consecutive school days due to a declared state of emergency, declared public health emergency, or a directive by the appropriate health agency or officer to institute a public health-related closure. A day of virtual instruction under this plan is considered the equivalent of a full day of school attendance for the purposes of meeting State and local graduation requirements, awarding of course credit, and such other matters as determined by the Commissioner of Education.
