Int. No. 2058

 

By the Public Advocate (Mr. Williams) and Council Members Treyger, Kallos, Brannan, Gibson, Chin and Adams

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the department of education to report on remote learning attendance

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Title 21-A of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new chapter 29 to read as follows:

Chapter 29

Remote Learning Attendance

§ 21-1000 Report on remote learning. a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

COVID-19. The term “COVID-19” means the 2019 novel coronavirus or 2019-nCoV.

School. The term “school” means a school of the city school district of the city of New York.

b. No later than October 1, 2020, and every week thereafter, the department shall submit to the mayor, the speaker of the council, the public advocate, the school diversity advisory group, all community education councils and post on the department’s website a report on student attendance throughout the previous week during which remote learning was utilized in place of in-person instruction. The department shall include student attendance data where remote learning was utilized along with part time in-person instruction. Such data shall be disaggregated by school, school district, grade, race, individualized education plan status, multilingual language learner status and English language learner status.

c. If any category of data reporting required by subdivision b of this section contains between one and five students, or allows another category to be narrowed to between one and five students, the number shall be replaced with a symbol. A category that contains zero shall be reported as zero, unless such reporting would violate any applicable provision of federal, state or local law relating to the privacy of student information.

d. No information that is required to be reported pursuant to this section shall be reported in a manner that would violate any applicable provision of federal, state or local law relating to the privacy of personal information or that would interfere with law enforcement investigations or otherwise conflict with the interests of law enforcement.
