Remote Learning

Remote Learning

Remote learning allows teachers to deliver their lessons online, and students can complete assignments, projects, and assessments just like they would in the classroom. This will create an opportunity for students and teachers to interact online and allows students to continue learning subjects and material that are a key part of their curriculum.

Google Classrooms

Students will have access to Google Classrooms to engage in virtual learning. You must create a DOE Student Account to access G Suite Google Classrooms. Please find information on G Suite Google Classroom usage and how to create a DOE account 


Live Sessions via Virtual Conferencing

The NYCDOE allows us multiple ways to hold live virtual sessions with our students. The approved platforms are: Google Meet, Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Your child's teacher will provide you information on which platform he/she will be using and how to log in to participate. 

Additional Apps

During the course of Remote Learning, your child's teacher may want to incorporate additional apps for student engagement. some of these apps may include: RazKids, Epic, Padlet, FlipGrid, iLearn and many others. Your child's teacher will provide you more information on which apps your child's class will be using during Remote Learning. 


It is important to engage in Remote Learning whether that be sitting in on live sessions, viewing pre-recorded lessons, submitting work and/ or participating in small group work. Your child's attendance will be taken daily and recorded. 

Submission of Work

Similar to being in the physical school building, school/ home work is required to be completed and submitted when due. Your child's submission of work will count towards his/ her overall grade average. 

Related Service Providers (Children with IEPs)

During Remote Learning, special services are provided virtually. Your child's RSP will reach out to you to schedule sessions. 


All work, assessments and participation count towards your child's overall grade. If you have any questions about submission of work, assessments or breakdown of grading, please reach out to your child's teacher. 

Tech Device

We understand that some families may only have access to one family device for multiple children. Our live sessions are scheduled so that live sessions do not interfere with other classes in our school. If you do encounter an issue with timing, please reach out to your children's teachers. 

Fill out this form, if you would like to request a DOE Tech Device

You will need your child's OSIS #, which can be found on a previous report card. You can also reach out to your child's teacher for the OSIS#.
