Helming calls for return to 5-day in-classroom instruction
Senator Pam Helming is calling for a return to five days of classroom study for all New York students.
During his Friday briefing, Governor Cuomo said he wants to see schools reopen to in-class learning as soon as possible.
Sen. Helming says in order for that to happen, the state needs to amend its guidance to give local school districts the ability to reopen. She accuses him of leaving parents hanging after suggesting schools should reopen while placing the responsibility on local governments.
School superintendents have told her they’re ready to return to five day in-person learning, but state guidance would need to be changed, especially the six foot distancing requirement and seating on school buses.
