Schools are anxiously awaiting Hochul to step into her position and begin handling issues surrounding safety measures in school this fall.
She has not indicated whether she is going to address the issues yet or if it will remain up to the districts to handle the rules on how to open.
One issue is masks, and Hochul has stated she plans to mandate indoor mask use for schools in the state of New York. Hochul doing this would take pressure off the district as parents argue against the mask mandate.
Others are wondering if Hochul will address if school staff will need mandatory vaccines.
