IT Help Desk And Resources For Remote Learning For Families
We would like to share the DOE’s IT HELP DESK AND RESOURCES FOR REMOTE LEARNING in English, Spanish and Chinese. This document outlines resources that are available to our families to support remote learning.
Parent University is a course registration and management system where NYC families can find free trainings on a wide range of topics. Parent University serves all families, from early childhood through adulthood, and seeks to educate and empower them as partners and advocates through free courses, resources, events, and activities.
Elections for Community and Citywide Education Councils will take place between February and May 2021 and this cycle promises to be historic! Thanks to the advocacy of Education Council members, NYS law was changed to allow parents of all NYC public school students to vote in these elections. In addition, voting for the Citywide Education Councils representing Special Education and English Language Learner communities was expanded to include all families of the students in these programs. We are excited about these changes!
Are you ready to Run. Serve. Lead?
As NYC School Account (NYCSA) is becoming a one-stop shop for student records and communications to parents, we have leveraged it to make the application and voting process more user-friendly and encourage maximum participation. Because NYCSA is the entry point for both applying and voting, it is imperative that all parents create an account and link all their children to it.
This guide to navigating NYC’s public services was created with and for families of students living in temporary housing or experiencing housing instability.
New York can no longer accept requests for religious exemptions from school immunization requirements.
As of June 13, 2019, public, private and parochial schools and child care programs in New York can no longer accept requests for religious exemptions from school immunization requirements. This law applies to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and to all child care settings. This legislation is in response to the measles outbreak and will help contain the spread of measles among unvaccinated students.
All prior religious exemptions granted to students are now invalid. Please see the Parent Immunization Letter from the DOE for more information.
All NYC students must meet the immunization requirements in order to attend school. You can review the immunization requirements online at schools.nyc.gov on the Immunizations page. Please review the Immunization Chart and Parent Immunization Letter to ensure that students are in compliance with requirements for school year 2019-20.
