ALBANY – School districts across New York State now have the autonomy to create their own reopening plans.

The New York State Department of Health announced the new policy on Thursday.

In a statement, State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker says, “with the end of the state disaster emergency on June 25, school districts are reestablished as the controlling entity for schools.”

Zucker furthers that districts do need to develop plans to open in-person safely, by following recommended guidance from the CDC and local health leaders.
