BAYONNE, NJ - Parents and students could know as early as Aug. 4 whether the New Jersey Department of Education has approved the district’s plan for all virtual learning in September.

“The plan has been submitted,” Bayonne Public Schools Superintendent John Niesz said. “If that is not approved, we would go to our Hybrid model of alternating days. Our all-in plan would be contingent upon a number of students opting for virtual instruction.”

“As always COVID-19 is an ever-changing situation,” he added.

Bayonne, Niesz said, is the first district in the state to submit a plan that would provide for virtual only classes. This would have all students learning remotely. Teachers would instruct via computer either from home or from the classroom.

But Governor Phil Murphy and the DOE have yet to approve virtual only instruction for the coming school year.

Hybrid instruction, Niesz said, will have three groups of students rotating into the classroom two days a week.
