ALBANY – Necessary, in-person special education instruction will be allowed in New York State this summer.

The change comes after an executive order signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.








Frustration had been growing among parents of children with special needs as the Governor had given approval for summer camp, but summer school programs for kids with disabilities were still ordered closed and summer schools will continue through online learning.

The new executive order will allow for in-person special education instruction to continue.









According to the order, a school district that provides the services must follow state and federal guidelines.
