The preliminary success of reopening New York City schools and what it may mean for other districts


October 22, 2020

(CNN) - The New York City public school system, the largest school district in the country, has so far been able to reopen for in-person instruction without a massive outbreak of coronavirus cases.

Aside from New York City, the remaining nine of the nation's top 10 school districts started their school years online. New York's preliminary success could potentially serve as a resource for other districts embarking on a return to in-person learning.

The city launched a new testing program on October 9, where 10 percent to 20 percent of student and staff populations at each school will randomly be tested once a month. The first week of testing yielded "remarkable" results, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday.
