The Department of Education has agreed to allow all employees of the United Federation of Teachers to work remotely when they are not needed on site.
The decision comes after several protests around the city calling on the DOE to make the school year fully remote to protect both educators and students.
The deal will allow teachers without coronavirus exemptions to work from home. Some teachers were previously required to show up to school buildings for instruction even when teaching remote classes.
The agreement pertains to all UFT employees, regardless of job title.
