Continuity of Learning

In response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), NYSED launched this website featuring continuity of learning resources to provide districts and teachers with increased options to keep students engaged in learning.

Decisions on continuity of learning, including instructional decisions, methods, tools, curriculum, and resources utilized, are a local decision. Districts/schools may wish to first consider utilizing resources that are currently available, and we encourage you to consult with local experts in curriculum, instruction, and technology, such as your local BOCES or Regional Information Center (RIC). 

The resources listed here are provided as options and examples only, in an attempt to provide helpful information. NYSED does not require, recommend, endorse, or advise on any specific program or product. All instructional decisions are made at the local level.

Sharing Your Stories: Connections in Education during the Coronavirus Crisis

NYSED is collecting stories of the ways that schools are staying connected to students, teachers, and the school community. 

We encourage you to share your story. Please click the Staying Connected link for more information


New York State schools must consider the needs of all students and strive to ensure that any plans for continuity of learning are equitable and available to all students.

At this time, all LEAs should have submitted their continuity of education plans to the Department through the online business portal. Plans were due by 5 PM on March 19, 2020.

The links to the left will help navigate through provided resources, which may be used for ideas and inspiration as districts and schools make the best decisions for their students.

NYSED will continue to update this site as more information is made available. Suggestions are welcome and can be emailed to
