ALBANY, NY- Every region’s infection rate here in New York is below the threshold necessary for schools to open, meaning kids will be going back to class this fall, the office of Governor Andrew Cuomo reports.

“Our school guidance has been touted as the smartest as the country. Our economic reopening guidance was the smartest in the country. So, if anyone can do it, we can do it,” the Governor said. “But we have been successful because we've been smart and we have to continue to be smart. Parents and teachers must feel safe and secure in each school district's plan to return to school, and those plans must adhere to the Department of Health's guidance.”

The Department of Health will review submitted reopening plans from school districts and notify districts of their status on Monday.

Out of 749 school districts across the state, 127 have not yet submitted plans to the Department of Health, and another 50 are incomplete or deficient.

The determination of how individual districts reopen - in-person vs a hybrid model - will be made by local school districts under strict Department of Health guidelines
