In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, Governor Cuomo extended the March 16, 2020 directive that all non-essential State employees for New York State’s agencies and public authorities, including the State Education Department, should not report to work. This directive will remain in effect until close of business April 15, 2020.
To our customers: This emergency will significantly impact normal business activities and services provided by the New York State Education Department. Please expect delays in services, wait times, and responses. We appreciate your patience.
Effective immediately, and as a necessary precaution, access to all State Education Department buildings will be restricted to visitors until further notice. Building access will be limited to state employees who have official duties within the buildings.
