NY School Calendar 2020

Ongoing uncertainty regarding when schools will reopen has been at the forefront of everyone’s mind since school districts across New York State closed their doors on March 16th and shifted toward remote learning. Parents are appropriately concerned about what the upcoming 2020-2021 school year will look like for students and staff.

While so much remains unknown, we do know that the education sector is in the final phase of New York’s four-phased reopening plan. Additionally, when schools do reopen, they will likely look much different than they did previously as NY school districts adjust to forthcoming regulations and guidance.

For NYC public schools, the final day of remote learning for the 2019-2020 academic year will be Friday, June 26th. The NYC Department of Education recently announced that summer school will be offered remotely and begin earlier than usual to allow students a more continuous learning experience.
  • Elementary and middle school students who have been recommended or are required to receive summer instruction will start on Monday, July 6th and finish on Tuesday, August 11th.
  • High school students will begin remote summer learning on Monday, July 6th and conclude on Friday, August 14th.
  • Students with 12-month IEP services will receive instruction from Thursday, July 2nd to Thursday, August 13th.
  • Many school districts, including the NYC Department of Education, have yet to announce definitive start dates for the 2019-2020 academic year. If New York schools are able to abide by the traditional calendar year, we might expect students to return to school anytime following the Labor Day holiday. Several private schools in the NYC and surrounding areas have start dates for the upcoming school year posted on their websites, which certainly remain subject to change. The following is a list of a few of those start dates
