Celebrating 50 Years
August 2020
DOE Outdoor Learning Survey for Principals
On Monday, Mayor de Blasio and Chancellor Carranza 
announced permission for schools to include outdoor 
learning in their reopening plans.

  • Outdoor learning is optional and allows the use of 
outdoor space for classes, especially those that require 
additional spacing per public health guidance.

  • Outdoor space can include on-site school yards, 
public parks, adjacent streets, and previously approved 
Play Streets.

  • Schools in the 27 neighborhoods most impacted by 
COVID and schools with no outdoor space on-site will 
receive priority.

  • Representatives from DOT, NYPD, DSNY, FDNY, 
Parks, and the DOE will oversee the approval process.

The Department of Education sent a survey to all 
principals to collect information on outdoor learning 
needs for the upcoming school year.

Surveys are due on Friday, August 28th in order to 
receive a response by Friday, September 4th. Surveys 
submitted after the 28th will be considered on a rolling 

If your school is considering outdoor learning and 
needs additional help with planning, please know 
we are here as a resource.

Every NYC school voice counts!
