The DOE has just released its posting for summer school this year and is now accepting applications. The city is expecting the largest summer school enrollment in its history at its Summer Rising program, so there are many positions to fill. Most students will be attending the program in person.
The deadline to apply is Friday, June 11. There may be a small cohort of remote students, but if you want to ensure a position for yourself, you should apply for an in-person assignment.
Retention rights will be honored for all positions that are offered. If you hold retention rights, were approved for a medical accommodation to work remotely in the 2020-21 school year and choose not to apply for this year's in-person summer program, you will retain your retention rights for future summers.
Members will receive training on July 1 and 2, and four-hour instructional days will take place July 6 through August 12.
Last summer, the DOE initially chose not to offer positions for lab specialists and school librarians. I am pleased to tell you those positions are open this summer.
This summer, the DOE's Summer Rising program is open to all students in grades K-8 who wish to attend. Students will participate in school-based enrichment programming provided by the Department of Youth and Community Development after the instructional day ends.
