She’s apparently too cool for school.
New York City schools Chancellor Richard Carranza’s chief point person on reopening schools has yet to set foot in one, a source told The Post.
Alison Hirsh, who cut bait with Mayor de Blasio just nine months after joining City Hall as a senior adviser for strategic planning, has been working remotely “the entire time” since getting the city Department of Education gig in June — and won’t even report to agency headquarters, the insider revealed.
“He [Carranza] brought her on to be the senior adviser on school reopening even though she has no history of working with schools,” the source said. “The most senior person, the point person, refuses to come into Tweed [Courthouse, DOE HQ].”
It is unclear whether Hirsh has gone on any of the school walk-throughs to check whether they are fit for children and staff, or if she has any underlying health problems that would prevent her from being on-site.
Inspections of the city’s 1,600 schools began Aug. 25 and were supposed to be wrapped up Sept. 1.
“We will make sure that every school is fully inspected, every classroom is fully inspected,” de Blasio told reporters after unveiling an 11th-hour plan to inspect ventilation systems at schools to guard against coronavirus exposure.
Nearly 100 DOE staffers — including administrators and teachers — have died from COVID-19, according to the department.
Hirsh jumped ship at City Hall because she was ticked the mayor sided with the NYPD during a week of rioting, looting and often-raucous protests late May into June. But she kept her hefty $230,000 salary at the DOE.
Hirsh on Friday night referred any questions on her role in reopening to the DOE press office. The DOE would not answer whether Hirsh had visited or inspected any schools over the summer.
