Reopening Plan 2022-23


Based on the work that BSNBCS did to reopen its school building for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school  year, BSNBCS has developed a comprehensive reopening plan for 2023-23, in compliance with safe operational guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and the New York City Department of Health (NYCDOH). The plan was initially published on July 30th 2020 and will be regularly revised and updated to reflect current scientific knowledge regarding the prevention of SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19) transmission.


BSNBCS American Recovery Plan

On March 11, 2021, the President signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP). ARP makes available $122.8 billion nationally in a third round of Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds. New York State has been allocated nearly $9 billion under the ARP Act’s Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund. Below is BSNBCS’s submission to NYSED  for these funds, the budget narrative and FS-10 budget.

Individuals who seek information about the ESSER and ARP plans or need access through non-electronic means can call our main phone number 718-453-1001 to receive access to a physical hard copy of the requested materials.  Individuals who speak a language other than English can receive translation services or access to accessible materials for individuals with disabilities by calling our main phone number.

Under the interim final requirements, each LEA that receives ARP ESSER funds must develop a plan for its use of ARP ESSER funds and submit it to the SEA within a reasonable timeline determined by the SEA. The plan must contain, at a minimum, the extent to which and how the funds will be used to implement prevention and mitigation strategies that are, to the extent practicable, consistent with CDC guidance; how the LEA will use the funds it reserves under section 2001(e)(1) of the ARP Act to address the academic impact of lost instructional time; how the LEA will use its remaining ARP ESSER funds; and how the LEA will ensure the interventions it implements will respond to the social, emotional, mental health, and academic needs of all students and particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

stars BSNBCS is not only a supportive school for my children, I have a third grader and a seventh grader, it is very supportive to me as a parent as well. Their teachers are in communication with me regularly about my child’s progress and the office team and support staff are always available to answer any questions. It is a loving community that I am glad to be a part of!

stars This is a great school. My son started out in kindergarten and he will be going to 5th grade for the new school year. The teachers work hard with each child. The staff are friendly and polite and the school as a whole is well organized. Thank you BSNBCS.
