We all know that Governor Andrew Cuomo has closed schools in New York until the end of this academic school year but there is yet to be a decision handed down from the Governor about the upcoming academic year starting in September.

There is now a way to voice your opinion about this important topic anonymously. You can participate in a statewide virtual conversation about reopening schools. By participating, you will be able to read and rate other participants’ responses. Remember that all contributions are anonymous.

This statewide forum was facilitated by the 37 New York BOCES (Boards of Cooperative Educational Services). The results of this exchange will be shared with our elected officials so that they will have a broader understanding of constituents' thoughts about a return to in-person schooling.
