Bergen County Closes All 75 School Districts Due to Coronavirus Concerns

Bergen County

Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco released the following statement regarding the closure of all school districts in the county:

” After consulting with Executive Leadership of the Bergen County Association of School Administrators and our County Health Officer, I have decided to have all 75 public school districts in Bergen County transition from on-site learning to off-site internet-based and/or paper-based distance learning until further notice, effective tomorrow at 3 P.M.

With the continuing spread of COVID-19 throughout Bergen County, it is imperative that we take action and do everything in our power to protect our 1 million residents.

This includes our 75 school districts which have almost 170,000 children; 16,000 teachers; and hundreds and hundreds of administrative, custodial and support staff.
