New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Saturday that the city’s public schools would remain shut for the rest of the academic year, a decision that was widely expected given the scale of the coronavirus crisis in New York City.

“Lord knows, having to tell you that we cannot bring our schools back for the remainder of this school year is painful,” de Blasio said at a press conference Saturday. “But I can also tell you, it’s the right thing to do.”

But this is New York, so before anything happens, the mayor and the governor must squabble about it first. Barely hours after de Blasio said the nation’s largest school system would rely on remote learning through June, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo described the mayor’s decision as an “opinion.”

Cuomo said any decision in New York City would require coordination with counties surrounding New York City on Long Island and in Westchester, and ideally, in cooperation with New Jersey and Connecticut. His office told Vox the governor believes that such coordination will allow for clearer public messaging and limited public panic.

“You can’t make a decision just within New York City, without coordinating that decision with the whole metropolitan region because it all works together,” the governor said Saturday at his own, separate, news conference following de Blasio’s.

JUST IN: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says “there has been no decision” made on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio's announcement to keep public schools closed for rest of the year.

“That's his opinion, but he didn't close them and he can't open them.”

“I understand the mayor’s position, which he wants to close them until June,” Cuomo continued. “And we may do that, but we’re going to do that in a coordinated sense with the other localities, it makes no sense for one locality to take one location that’s not coordinated with the others.”

When pressed by a reporter about what his stance means for the approximately 1.1 million kids in the New York City public school systems, teachers, and their parents, Cuomo said: “He didn’t close them, and he can’t open them, it happened on a metropolitan-wide basis, and we’ll act on a metropolitan basis.”

The city would normally have the jurisdiction to close its schools. But Cuomo issued an executive order on March 18 which required state approval for any local ordinances. Cuomo also issued an order that said schools would be closed statewide until April 29, at which point the closures would be reevaluated.

A spokesperson for Cuomo’s office said the governor is continuing to look at the question of schools with the facts and information available, but that he is looking at the issue with the entire state — and with what the governors of New Jersey and Connecticut choose to do — in mind.

Freddi Goldstein, de Blasio’s press secretary, pushed back after Cuomo’s press conference. “The Governor’s reaction to us keeping schools closed is reminiscent of how he reacted when the Mayor called for a shelter in place.

We were right then and we’re right now,” Goldstein wrote on . “Schools will remain closed, just how we eventually — days later — moved to a shelter in place model.

” (Vox reached out to the mayor’s office, and will update with any response.)

The Governor's reaction to us keeping schools closed is reminiscent of how he reacted when the Mayor called for a shelter in place. We were right then and we're right now.

Schools will remain closed, just how we eventually – days later – moved to a shelter in place model.

It is true Mayor de Blasio wanted to issue a shelter-in-place order in mid-March, a move which Cuomo initially rejected, only to announce a statewide stay-at-home order days later.

And now, here the state and city are againin disagreement — this time, with schools.

New York City schools are out for the — to be determined?

New York City announced the closing of its public schools, and a shift to online learning, after many other districts, including Los Angeles, had already made the decision to shutter.

Mayor de Blasio, in particular, had been hesitant to close the nation’s largest school system because of concerns about child care and other services. Officials worried that many frontline and essential workers, including health care and transit workers, would not have a child care alternative.

New York City schools chancellor Richard A.

Carranza called shuttering schools the “last resort” because of the hundreds of thousands of low-income students who rely on public schools for meals and other services, including more than 100,000 homeless students.

Officials also had concerns about computer or internet access for thousands of students if they had to learn remotely — a serious problem that’s not been fully resolved.

But amid pressure from the teachers’ union, and as the seriousness of the coronavirus outbreak escalated by the day, the city really had no choice but to close the school system.

The announcement of that closure was somewhat haphazard, too.

According to the New York Times, as the city prepared to announce the closing of schools, Cuomo basically preempted it, saying in a press conference on Sunday, March 15, that he wanted NYC schools, along with those in Westchester and Long Island, to close, and then called on the city to announce a plan within 24 hours to provide food and child care.

Later that day, de Blasio made his own announcement that schools were to officially close on March 16, and that teachers planned to resume classes through remote learning March 23. He also said until that time, schools would provide grab-and-go meals for students to pick up. (As of this week, the schools have expanded the program, providing food to anyone in need.)

“Our first attempt to reopen public schools will be Monday, April 20,” de Blasio said at the time. “We may not have the opportunity to reopen them in this full school year.”

That deadline is approaching (and Cuomo’s order has schools closed statewide through April 29), but rather than offering clarity, there’s just more confusion.

De Blasio said pretty definitely on Saturday that schools would remain shut for the rest of the year, with teachers relying on remote learning, calling the decision “heartbreaking,” while acknowledging that the city still needs to help connect more students to internet-enabled devices.

“This is a public health decision — and not an easy one,” de Blasio said. “But it’s the right one. The social distancing strategies have been working, and we cannot risk a resurgence of the virus.”

De Blasio added that he had come to the conclusion after speaking with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert. Fauci has previously cautioned against opening schools too early in places where the coronavirus outbreak is not yet under control.

But shortly after de Blasio’s decision, Cuomo said: not so fast.

An official in the governor’s office said the mayor’s office called about five minutes before de Blasio’s press conference, indicating that the mayor wanted to discuss school closings — not that he was going to announce it Saturday morning. Goldstein, the mayor’s press secretary, said when the mayor had made the decision to close schools, “had informed the Governor (called and texted). Our staff also spoke. We told the public.”

We wanted parents and teachers to have certainty as early as possible. When the Mayor made the call, he informed the Governor (called and texted). Our staff also spoke. We told the public. Those are the facts. Let's keep kids and their parents first.

It is really difficult to imagine New York City’s schools — or even the surrounding areas — opening up schools again this academic year.

New York City remains the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis in the United States, with more than 98,700 confirmed cases and more than 5,700 deaths as of April 11.

Though hospitalizations and ICU admissions are beginning to stabilize, the death toll in the state still remains staggering, with hundreds dying daily. And Cuomo and de Blasio actually do agree on one thing: the social distancing measures and restrictions cannot be eased anytime soon.

More than a dozen states have already announced closures through at least the end of the academic year, including Washington state and California. As the United Federation of Teachers president Michael Mulgrew put it Saturday: “Keeping school buildings closed is the right decision — regardless of who is responsible.”

The mayor and governor are feuding. Welcome to New York.

Over the years (yes, years), Cuomo and de Blasio have never really tried to hide their apparent dis for each other. They’ve fought over everything from public housing to snowstorms — and have definitely had disagreements about schools before. And let us never, ever forget the Harlem deer.

The unprecedented emergency of the coronavirus has done little to temper the tensions between the mayor and the governor. The two continue to hold separate press conferences daily; they haven’t appeared together in more than a month. Their one joint coronavirus press conference happened on March 2, the day after New York City confirmed its very first coronavirus case.

As the New York Times reported in their deep dive on New York’s handling of the crisis, that “though the two leaders put up a unified front at the outset of the outbreak, it was clear by the middle of March that a high-stakes version of their longstanding political battles was playing out.”

The question of closing schools was one of the first areas over which the two disagreed, and they’ve also clashed publicly on the question of a stay-at-home order for New York City.

Cuomo has said repeatedly that he’s trying to coordinate responses in New York state with those of New Jersey and Connecticut, and any plan to try to alter current restrictions must involve both a statewide and regional response. But often, that critical coordination seems absent when it comes to communication between New York City and Albany.

Perceptions have also diverged on how the two leaders have handled the crisis in New York overall. Cuomo’s press conferences have become national viewing.

His fact-based presentation (complete with lots of Powerpoint slides) contrast with President Donald Trump’s freewheeling and fact-free presentations, and Cuomo — who has a reputation as a hard-charging and skilled operator — has followed up his formal addresses with folksy and empathetic appeals (sometimes paired with slam-poetry-esque slides) that have become oddly soothing to a city and state facing a profound trauma.

De Blasio —though he has tried to push more aggressive measures since the scope of the crisis became clear in mid-March — has faced sharper critiques.

In particular, he has gotten pushback for some seemingly tone-deaf actions during the pandemic, such as going to his YMCA gym in Brooklyn when the city was shutting down and continuing to take his weekend walks in Prospect Park, in Brooklyn, though he currently lives in the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

New York is still in the middle of a crisis, but in any postmortem of the catastrophe, both of the leaders’ potential missteps will be closely examined: de Blasio encouraging New Yorkers to go about their routines after the first coronavirus case was detected, Cuomo waiting to issue stay-at-home orders. The continued breakdown of their relationship might factor in, too.

Nyc schools reopening in fall

Cuomo, de Blasio clash over NYC schools reopening in the fall

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a hybrid back-to-school plan Wednesday with most students inside their physical schools just two or three days a week, but Gov.

Andrew Cuomo said it's up to him to decide whether schools can open at all.

Cuomo, however, a Democrat de Blasio who has clashed with the mayor repeatedly over control of the city's schools and other issues, said all school districts statewide must submit plans for reopening by July 31 and state officials will decide in the first week of August whether to accept the plans — and whether schools will reopen in the fall at all.

Cuomo said he wants to see if the virus spikes in upcoming weeks, but the deadline leaves his administration just weeks to approve, deny or seek changes to re-opening plans for as many as school districts.

Under one model outlined by de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza, one group of students at a school would be in their classrooms on Tuesdays and Thursdays, a second group would be in class Wednesdays and Fridays and the two groups would alternate Mondays.

He said protocols for reopening in September will include face coverings for students and staff and nightly deep cleaning of schools.

Many questions were left unanswered, including what working parents will do on the days when their children are learning at home.

The governors of New Jersey and Connecticut said they're on track to re-open schools this fall, while Florida's governor is requiring schools to reopen.

The announcement of a reopening plan for New York City's 1.

States have had more time to plan for re-opening school then they did this spring, but New York schools now have weeks left to nail down logistics of everything from putting fewer kids on school buses to having enough substitutes to social distance in small schools. New York, once the epicenter of the coronavirus in the United States, has been reopening in stages as officials seek to keep the rate of new infections low.

Cuomo announced that malls can start to open in certain parts of the state on Friday as long as they have air filtration systems thought to help remove COVID particles from the air.

The number of patients hospitalized with COVID peaked at more than 18, statewide in mid-April and has plunged since then, but hospitalizations ticked up over the last two days, from around Sunday to more than Tuesday.

Cuomo said all county fairs will be canceled this summer. Earlier this week, he announced the cancellation of the annual state fair in Syracuse. Continue Reading Below.

He also pointed out older students are better at remote learning and the students with the least amount of desire to go back to the classroom, according to department of education surveys of high school students.

During the town hall, the chancellor also revealed city leaders have mentioned a policy for COVID immunizations for students 16 and older but hasn't discussed more than that because the student population is not the priority with a vaccine shortage.

Schools will be opening in September,” de Blasio said, answering a reporter's question about a concrete timeline.

The mayor said schools will have a maximum number of students who can attend any available space they can convert to learning areas that support social distancing.

In cases where all students can't attend a certain class, schools have staggered schedules, the mayor said.

De Blasio said that some schools will be able to have all of their students back in class when you factor in space, while others would not.

Schools are still in the process of putting together plans and have not been asked to submit them to the state but will be ready when that time comes, Chancellor Richard Carranza said.

Ultimately, though, the decision will be made by the state as to whether schools will open in the fall. It is state law that governs the opening and closing of schools during the pandemic, not local government, Gov. Andrew Cuomo's communications director Dani Lever said in a statement.

Will schools be safe this fall?

Experts weigh in. It's not uncommon for Cuomo and de Blasio to disagree. The two have had a yearslong feud that began just a few months after de Blasio took office in amid the newly installed mayor's push to expand pre-kindergarten and after-school programs in New York City.

While it had cooled in recent months, it has played out in dozens of episodes of conflict and bickering. In April, de Blasio announced that the city's public school buildings would remain closed through the end of the school year because of coronavirus concerns — but the governor later said no decision about the schools had been made.

Ultimately, the schools did close, and students transitioned to virtual learning. Wherever they land on this issue, there is apparent widespread support among parents to get the kids back in the classroom.

The survey was given to overpublic school parents by the Department of Education, de Blasio said.By Selim Algar and Lia Eustachewich.

Students and staff will be chosen at random for temperature screenings every day, prior to entering the building, and will be required to conduct at-home temperature checks, according to the expanded guidance, which is posted online.

In schools where students travel between classes, quarantine is also mandated for individuals in all classes attended by the confirmed case. A COVID positive individual will only be allowed to return to school with clearance from a doctor and if they are symptom-free for 24 hours without use of medication, the plan says.

There is also a chain-of-command in place when communicating a positive case — involving the Department of Health, Department of Education, school principal, Building Response Team, superintendent, affected teachers and Borough Safety Director. The final proposal released Friday night is an expanded version of one submitted to the state for approval last week. Schools are also required to submit individual plans, which are expected to be released next week.

Details on social distancing requirements, including class sizes, will be determined by the individual schools. On Friday, Gov. Families can still opt into percent remote learning at any time but can only switch back to blended learning on a quarterly basis.

Most of the increase was from China, which now consumes 12 percent of global oil production.

But its economic reforms are slowing growth. In February 2016, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and Iran discussed a production freeze. That briefly put a floor under plummeting oil prices. But it didn't pan out because Iran and Russia refused to cut their production.

By then, the cheap sources of oil will have been exhausted, making it more expensive to extract oil. By 2026, the United States will become a net energy exporter. It has been an energy importer since 1953.

Oil production will rise until 2030, when shale oil production will slow. The EIA's forecasts all depend on 1) what happens with U. The predictions given here are for the EIA's most ly scenario.

It based its prediction on skyrocketing demand from China and other emerging markets.

The client is given a chance to determine independently the order of the bets included in the chain and stake only on the first event of the chain.

Thus, the concept of “account of the chain” is imported. After the tournament of each single bet included in the chain the sum of that account is calculated. Initially it is equal to the sum of the first bet. If the sum on the chain account is less than its initial sum, the account balance calculates single bet of the next event in the chain.

The sum that remains on the account after calculation of all bets in the chain is a subject to payment. If the sum on the account reaches zero – the chain breaks and is considered as lost.
