Coronavirus NYC: Mayor Bill de Blasio unveils summer learning plan for students

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that remote learning would continue for many public school students over the summer.

School Chancellor Richard Carranza said that the summer school program is for kids with disabilities with 12-month learning plans for all grade levels, students in grades 3-8, and grades 9-12 that need to meet requirements to move up to the next grade or if it is recommended by the teacher.

270 NYC employees have been killed by the coronavirus, Mayor de Blasio said on Tuesday. The city will support the line-of-duty death benefit for survivors of municipal employees who have died of COVID-19 and will advance state legislation to make it a reality.

“Today is a mixed bag,” the mayor said of the city’s three indicators. People admitted to the hospital went up, ICU patients also increased, but the percentage of people testing positive for COVID-19 has moved into the single digits at 9%.
