NEW YORK — With New York City schools closed and the city “paused” as part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s statewide coronavirus crackdown, the city’s teachers and over 1.1 million students begin a new remote-learning program Monday.

The program launches as nearly 300,000 students are predicted to not have either the devices or high-speed internet connection they might need to keep up.

NYC Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza told the PIX11 Morning News on Friday how the Department of Education plans to prioritize low-income and homeless students, as well as a plan for getting devices in the hands of more students.
