NEW: Blended learning students will have separate teachers for the days they are in person and the days they are remote, and those teachers will work as a team, per new guidance @NYCSchools has sent to principals.
The city is ALSO creating a new job title of "virtual content specialist," to help provide instructional resources for online learning. Seems that they have not even posted these jobs yet, two weeks out:
"Additional guidance on posting and filling the role is forthcoming."
More on how this is supposed to work:
"Remote and on-site teachers will be organized into teaching pairs or teams to coordinate instruction using their school’s shared, inclusive and digital curriculum and complemented, as deemed appropriate, with resources created by the VCS"
Of course, this approach requires MANY extra teachers -- generally, double, although guidance notes some high school level block programming may eliminate need for remote teachers for certain classes.

Big question is where all this staff is coming from and what it will cost.
I can tell you some principals I am speaking to are already deeply skeptical... they feel what's being outlined here on paper will not actual be possible in practice with staffing levels etc.
Lots of questions on how this will be coordinated! Per the guidance:
"The blended on-site teacher will coordinate and plan for learning with the blended remote teacher partner during the Instructional Coordination Period."
