NEW YORK CITY — The clock is ticking for parents of New York City school students to decide whether or not to opt into a blended-learning model.

So far, 280,000 students are back in school as part of the blended learning program, but that number could go up in the coming weeks.

Beginning Nov. 2 through Nov. 15, virtual students have the chance to switch to a hybrid learning option, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza announced.

Jamie Ewing, a science teacher at P.S. 277 in the South Bronx, discussed how everything is going since the start of classes.
