image for No students in class until January? Yes, one N.J. union leader says in urging big delay.

I know I am not willing to put my daughter in a school right now,” said McEntee, father of a 7-year-old.

“Our union would suggest, at the moment, to set a target date of January and see where they are,” McEntee told NJ Advance Media on Thursday.

It is not clear whether McEntee’s call for at least a four-month delay and all-remote learning will draw support.

The district began distributing 7,000 Chromebooks to all high school students in April and launched a fundraising campaign for additional purchases that remains ongoing.

McEntee has been the Paterson teachers’ union president since 2015 and does not live in Paterson.

Blistan said that, throughout New Jersey, teachers will be doing their jobs and educating students on schedule, regardless of whether the students are in class or learning from home.

The Paterson district’s reopening plan will be presented to the school board on Monday, Shafer said. »
