New Guidance Authorizes New Jersey Schools to Offer “Virtual Only” Option
Author: John G. GeppertDate: July 30, 2020
In response to concerns about safely reopening schools, Gov. Phil Murphy has eliminated the requirement that New Jersey students receive in-person instruction at least part of the time, and families will now be able to choose a “virtual-only” option. On July 24, 2020, the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) issued guidance on how schools should implement remote learning.
“The Department is releasing this guidance to make clear that this option should be allowed by school districts as part of their reopening plans,” Gov. Murphy said. “We have heard from numerous parents and families who have asked for this, and we have heard them loud and clear. Our top priority is keeping students, their families and educators safe. And, to do that, flexibility, local decision-making and empowering parents and educators are all critical.”
