No more snow days for New York City public schools

Sept. 8, 2022
The nation's largest school system will turn to remote learning when snow or other emergencies force it to close school buildings.

New York City public schools will no longer cancel classes because of excessive snow or other poor weather.

Fox5 New York reports that Schools Chancellor David Banks says that the nation's largest school system will rely on technology and remote learning to continue classes when excessive snow or other factor cause school buildings to close.

State law in New York calls for 180 days of classes, and avoiding weather-related closings will help city schools abide by that mandate.

"There are technically no more snow days," Banks said on Good Day New York. "With the new technology we have, it's one of the good things that came out of Covid....Sorry, kids."
