Letters from the district


Governor’s Office

On Monday, July 13, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the threshold criteria for reopening schools. The Governor will use these criteria to make a final decision on the reopening of schools for the Capital Region and the rest of New York State. This decision is expected to be made between Aug. 1-7.

New York state’s school reopening decisions will be made using these criteria:

  • Open: Schools can open in a region in phase 4 where there is an infection rate at or below 5% (14-day average)
  • Close: Schools will close if the regional infection rate rises above 9% (7-day average)

New York State Education Department

On Thursday, July 16, the New York State Education Department released guidance to help schools and school districts as they plan to reopen, whether that occurs in person, remotely, or in a combination of the two. Read the guidance document.
