Ewing Township School District Chapter 27 Emergency Virtual or Remote Instruction Program Plan for 2023-2024

n April 2020, Governor Murphy signed A-3904 into law (P.L.2020, c.27, or Chapter 27), which, in part, requires each school district, charter school, renaissance school project, and Approved Private School for Students with Disabilities (APSSD), hereinafter referred to as local educational agencies (LEAs), to submit a proposed program for emergency virtual or remote instruction (Plan) by July 31 annually to the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE). In July 2022, the NJDOE readopted N.J.A.C. 6A:32, School District Operations, with amendments and new rules that include updates to the components of the LEAs Plan. This law provides for the continuity of instruction in the event of a public health-related district closure, by permitting LEAs to utilize virtual or remote instruction to satisfy the 180-day requirement pursuant to N.J.A.C. 6A:32-13.1 & 13.2.


To assist LEAs in the submission of Plans, the NJDOE is issuing Local Educational Agency Guidance for Chapter 27 Emergency Virtual or Remote Instruction Programs for the 2023-2024 School Year,located on the NJDOE County Offices webpage. It includes a checklist to identify components that must be included in the Plan.


By July 31 annually, each Chief School Administrator/LEA lead person must submit the LEAs Plan for the next school year, approved by the district board of education or charter or renaissance school project board of trustees, and the completed checklist to the respective County Office of Education. As a reminder, an LEA must also post the Plan prominently on the LEA's website.
