The following email was sent on Thursday, Nov. 12, to school counselors from Chapter Leader Rosemarie Thompson.
Many counselors have reached out to me with questions about mandated counseling supports during the COVID-19 pandemic. The UFT and the DOE collaborated on a new FAQ to address common questions and concerns.
You can also find the Q&A on the DOE website. (You must be logged in to view this page.)
I hope this document answers your questions and makes your life easier.
Thank you for the ongoing support you're providing to students as we navigate the unfamiliar waters of blended and remote learning. I hope you have a safe and joyful Thanksgiving.
