The first day of classes for New York City students next school year has been set to September 8.
Education department officials released the 2022-2023 school year calendar on Tuesday. Recall that families have been anxiously awaiting official news about when school will begin.
The school calendar is historically released much earlier, typically in March or April.
Last school year, it was released in early May.
City officials didn’t say exactly what caused the delay.
School principals and families are still waiting on other critical pieces of information about next school year.
High school admissions offers have not been released. They are expected in June, later than normal. Also, schools have not yet received their budgets.
The city will expect students to complete assignments virtually if school buildings close due to severe weather.
Next school year will mark the full first academic year under Mayor Eric Adams and his schools Chancellor, David Banks.
