Contract 2023: Virtual learning
The contract provides for a major expansion of virtual learning in New York City public schools.
The DOE’s current centrally run pilot program will be expanded. The expansion would begin next school year with 25% of schools eligible to be selected for the program and will grow to all high schools in the 2027-28 school year.
In addition, high schools and 6-12 schools would be able to offer school-level virtual programs after school and on weekends to students who volunteer to take part.
UFT-represented employees can volunteer to apply for this program. No employee will be required to participate.
