Whether New Jersey school districts may offer full-time remote learning options for the 2021-2022 school year?
No. On May 17, 2021, New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy announced that all students will be back in school for full-time, in-person instruction for the 2021-2022 school year. Executive Order No. 175, issued on August 13th, 2020, which allowed school districts to offer remote instruction for the 2020-2021 school year, will expire at the end of the current school year. Therefore, effective September 2021, the full-time remote instructions options previously offered will not be available. However, school districts’ summer programs may proceed as planned.
