Regional enrichment centers during the coronavirus school closure

In order to successfully fight COVID-19, our first responders, health care providers, transit workers, and other key personnel must be able to come to work. That is why the DOE created Regional Enrichment Centers (RECs) — places where the children of these front-line workers can be safely cared for while their parents continue to serve the city in this time of need. Staffed by DOE employees and community-based organization partners, the centers provide children with three hot meals daily, remote learning time with their teachers, activities like art and music, and social and emotional support.
