Blended and Remote Learning

We are starting the school year with the Blended Learning Model 2 .

Blended Learning is an instructional model where students learn in person at PS59 some days and at-home virtually on other days. This model allows for fewer students to be in the building at once so that we can socially distance throughout the building.

100% Remote Instruction is an instructional model where students learn virtually every day.

For both Blended and 100% Remote students will experience some synchronous and asynchronous instruction. Synchronous means "live" whether virtual (Google Hangout) or in person. Asynchronous may be any one or a combination (pre-recording, learning websites, independent work, videos, group work, etc).

Parents may choose 100% Remote Learning throughout the year by filling out the Learning Preference Survey . Parent may opt into Blended Learning at specific points throughout the year.

Families who have previously chosen remote only learning will have the opportunity to opt into blended learning for the remainder of the school year between November 2 and November 15.

If Chancellor Carranza decides to change the NYC School Guideline for the 2020-2021 School Year, PS 59 will make the necessary changes to our learning models. Check this page for updates.
