    Pursuant to NJSA 18A:7f-9, schools must be in session for 180 days to receive state aid. The statute requires that school facilities be provided for at least 180 days during the school year. Section (b) notes that where a district is required to close the schools of the district for more than three consecutive school days due to a declared state of emergency, declared public health emergency, or a directive and/or recommendation by the appropriate health agency or officer to institute a public-health closure, days of virtual or remote instruction commensurate with in-person instruction will count towards the district's 180 day requirement.

    • Virtual Learning Implementation
    • Continuity of Learning
    • Assessment and Accountability
