Biden Administration Pushes New ‘Test-to-Stay’ Strategy To Keep Kids In School
- “If exposed children meet a certain criteria and continue to test negative, they can stay in school instead of quarantining at home,” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky said during a press briefing.
The new strategy leans on a “test-to-stay” policy, in which students who have been exposed to the virus but show no symptoms can remain in school as long as they test every day, or no less frequently than twice a week.
The policy would replace current CDC guidance, which recommends children who have been exposed quarantine for up to 10 days – a policy that’s shuttered whole classrooms for weeks at a time and made it difficult for educators to help students regain the academic, social and emotional losses incurred since the onset of the pandemic.

NYC Schools Will Increase COVID-19 Testing To Stay Open
New York City will increase COVID-19 testing in schools when the holiday break ends next week in an effort to keep classrooms open despite a surge in infections due to the highly infectious omicron variant of the virus, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday.
New York state will provide the city’s public schools with 2 million at-home test kits so that tests can be sent home with students if a classmate tests positive, de Blasio said, and students who test negative won’t have to quarantine.
Two clear messages we’re sending loud and clear,” said Adams, who joined de Blasio’s virtual coronavirus briefing. “Your children are safer in school. The numbers speak for themselves. And we are united to make sure they continue to be safe.”
New York City’s public school system, the nation’s largest with about a million students, was one of the first in the nation to reopen to in-person learning after the pandemic hit in 2020, but frequent school or classroom closings due to COVID-19 cases proved disruptive. The new approach will guarantee more consistency, de Blasio said.

Why Is This Important?
This will help instructors make sure all students are attentive during lesson/classwork
How Does This Benefit Both Instructors/Students?

Instructors don’t have to guess if a student is paying attention or not
What Do You Have To Do?
Ensure your student has their cameras on and are paying attention to what their instructor requires

Khan’s Tutorial will also be providing recorded session as a way to make up a missed class. We will now be allowing our students access to Zoom recordings of missed classes.
