Update for Families from the Chancellor

Dear Families,
I hope you and your families are keeping safe and healthy. I’m writing today with some important news. After three years leading the DOE, I will be stepping down as Chancellor in March.

The Fall 2020 School Experience Survey Closing Soon

Your feedback on remote learning, technology, how the Department of Education is communicating, and the health and safety in our schools will help us plan both remote and in-person learning. If you need help completing the survey, please call 311. The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, February 5, 2021.

Run for a Seat on a Council

Community Education Councils (CECs) are education policy advisory bodies responsible for, among other things, reviewing and evaluating their district’s educational programs, approving zoning lines, and holding public hearings on certain matters.

A Letter From The Chancellor

As we head into winter, it’s likely we will have inclement weather that in an ordinary year would cause all schools to close for teaching and learning. This year, if a snowstorm or other weather demands that school buildings close, all schools will still conduct remote learning on that day.

Kindergarten Registration Now Open!

In New York City, children enter kindergarten in the fall of the calendar year they turn five, and are guaranteed a kindergarten seat at a public school. If you have a child born in 2016, you will apply to kindergarten this winter and your child will begin kindergarten in September 2021. Once your child starts kindergarten, they can remain at the same school until its final elementary grade.
