Nyc Doe Rules and Regulations

These rules concern the participation of parents and communities. DOE has several regulations and policies related to privacy and security. These regulations deal with employee matters, from hiring to termination Volume A deal with student matters from admission to promotion. Schools will only close if the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) determines that there is widespread transmission in schools. With health and safety measures in place, we expect school closures to be limited. The vaccination portal asks you to identify the type of vaccine, where you received it (inside or outside New York City) and when you received the vaccine, and asks you to upload the image or screenshot of the proof of vaccination. All students and staff must wear a face covering when driving on school buses and anywhere on school property, indoors and outdoors, regardless of vaccination status, unless they have a medical exemption. Forgot your mask? No problem – every school has a reserve for children and adults. These guidelines apply to all DOE employees.

DOE will take steps to ensure that other DOE stakeholders, including suppliers, volunteers, and independent contractors, are informed of these policies. As an added precaution, every classroom in New York City was equipped with two air purifiers. School canteens will be equipped with large air units for additional protection and window exhaust fans to provide additional air circulation, and we will continue to increase ventilation in classrooms and schools. These measures meet or exceed CDC guidelines. This plan ensures the provision of adequate translation and interpretation services to parents with limited English proficiency in accordance with Registrar`s Regulation A-663. Good ventilation is essential to prevent COVID-19. Over the past year and a half, ventilation in every classroom in the city has been inspected, updated and repaired as required. Each DOE room used by students and staff for extended periods of time has fully functional ventilation by natural, mechanical or a combination of means. A COVID-19 vaccination requirement also applies to students participating in high-risk extracurricular activities, such as choir, musical theatre, dance/dance team, band/orchestra (with woodland considered), marching band, cheerleading/step teams/flag team.

Students five years of age and older must be vaccinated to participate in these extracurricular activities. This document is intended to provide general advice and does not cover all potential social media situations. If you have any questions, please see the FAQ (below) or contact your DOE Senior Counsel or DOE Office of Legal Services at 212-374-6888 or Because these policies reflect rapidly evolving technologies, DOE will periodically review them and update them as necessary. Your child`s school is taking many important precautions to keep students and staff healthy and safe this school year. Schools will be open to all students as scheduled from January 3. We are taking additional health and safety measures to ensure the safety of students and staff and the ability of our schools to remain open. To maintain a professional and appropriate relationship with students, DOE staff should not communicate with students currently enrolled in DOE schools on personal social media sites. DOE employees` communication with DOE students via personal social media is subject to the following exceptions: (a) communication with parents and (b) if an emergency situation requires such communication, in which case the DOE employee must notify his supervisor of the contact as soon as possible. Social media is defined as any form of online posting or presence that enables interactive communication, including, but not limited to, social networks, blogs, websites, Internet forums, and wikis. Examples of social media include Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, and Flickr. (These guidelines do not apply to the professional use of third-party collaboration tools for purposes other than social media.) All students and staff participating in high-risk PSAL sports or competitive after-school sports must be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Students in high-risk fall sports must receive their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine before the first day of competition. Winter and spring ALSP participants have until the start of their season to be fully vaccinated. High-risk sports include football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, lacrosse, stunts and rugby. Vaccination is also required for bowling participation, because although it is not a high-risk sport, it takes place in halls that require vaccination of children five years of age and older. Each school will randomly test students who have submitted their consent to the test on a weekly basis. Testing is conducted at a threshold of ten percent per school. In this way, in the event of a positive case, immediate action can be taken to protect the school community. (DOE employees who are journalists must comply with the same reporting obligations in a social media context. Various Chancellor`s Orders impose reporting obligations on DOE employees on issues such as child abuse, child abuse, school-related incidents and crimes, corporal punishment, verbal abuse, unlawful discrimination or harassment by DOE employees, high school sexual harassment, and harassment. student-to-student bullying and/or bullying. See, for example, Order in Council A-412 – Safe Schools, A-420 – Corporal Punishment, A-421 – Verbal Abuse, A-750 – Child Abuse, A-830 – Discrimination/Harassment, A-831 – Peer-to-Peer Sexual Harassment, A-832 – Student-to-Student Harassment.) The Internet Acceptable Use Policy (IAUSP) governs all electronic activities of users who use and access NYCDEE`s Internet systems. Acceptable proof of vaccination is one of the following: During lunch time, masks can be removed so that students can eat comfortably at a safe distance from each other.

Masks can also be removed during designated “mask breaks” when students maintain physical distance from each other. It is important that you give your child consent to participate in the school`s internal testing program. We know how important it is to keep our schools and classrooms open to learning, and we have done everything we can to ensure our classrooms are equipped to be safe learning environments, including vaccination of all staff and increased ventilation in all school buildings and classrooms. These measures mean less disruption to your child`s education. Starting January 3, schools will distribute free COVID-19 rapid take-home test kits to all students (in kindergarten or above) or staff who have COVID-like symptoms or who have been in a classroom where a positive case has been identified. The regulations of the Chancellor of the New York Department of Education cover a wide range of guidelines divided into four sections: In light of COVID-19, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) has determined that students who meet any of the following conditions will be provisionally admitted to medically necessary education: .
