Covid Rates Inch Toward Nycs Threshold For Shutting Down Schools
New York City has one last chance to turn the tide of rising coronavirus cases or else face possible shutdowns again that could include school closures, Mayor Bill de Blasio warned Monday.
The seven-day citywide positivity average reached 2.21 percent, creeping closer to the 3 percent threshold that the mayor set for a citywide closure of the countrys largest school system.
Were in a dangerous situation, and we have to change our habits, de Blasio said. We cannot take the risk of going back to larger shutdowns of our city, our economy.
The increase comes as New York heads into the holiday season, where a confluence of potentially problematic factors could hit at once: more families traveling to areas with even higher COVID-19 rates, less fresh air circulating inside because of closed windows, and an uptick of students entering school buildings as children who have been learning exclusively online have the opportunity to return to buildings.
Dr. Ted Long, who heads the citys Test and Trace Corps, said about 10 percent of cases are being tied back to travel, and another 5-10 percent are linked to specific gatherings and events. But officials have said schools have not been a driver of infections and random testing of students and staff on campuses have shown a positivity rate of just .15 percent.
Could Bishop Kearney High School Be Turned Into A Specialized High School
Two Brooklyn lawmakers sent a letter to Chancellor Richard Carranza asking the schools head to consider opening a Specialized High School in Southern Brooklyn. They have the perfect location the building of Bishop Kearneys High School that is closing on August 31st for good.
State Senator Andrew Gounardes and Council Member Justin Brannan urged Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chancellor Carranza to use this opportunity to increase access and reduce overcrowding for students in Districts 20, 21 and 22. Each year the three districts account about a quarter of the enrolled student body at specialized high schools, and three-quarters of students from Brooklyn that attend specialized high schools.
In 2019, only 4,798 out of 27,521 applicants 17%- to specialized high schools were offered admission, with a large racial variation. Admissions test SHSAT has been under fire by Chancellor Carranza as not a good enough measure of students capabilities, and changes to SHSAT proposed by Mayor de Blasio would disproportionately affect Southern Brooklyn students, understandably frustrating their parents.
Department of Education spokesperson Isabelle Boundy said that the Department will review the letter and well continue to work with our communities to ensure families across the City have high-quality high school options. DOE already leases space at the building for Brooklyns Daily Discovery Pre-K Center serving about a hundred students.
