NEW YORK (AP) - New York City postponed students' return to classrooms by more than a week to keep working on coronavirus safety precautions, announcing the delay Tuesday after teachers said they might OK a strike over the city's drive to open schools.

The change came nine days before the nation's largest public school system was set to resume teaching students face-to-face.

Now, instead of starting a mix of in-person and remote learning on Sept. 10, the city's more than 1 million public school students will start remote-only classes Sept. 16. In-school instruction will begin Sept. 21.
