Remote Learning & Electronic Communications

NYC Schools Account

NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) is a web-based application that lets you see your child’s academic and biographic information on any computer, phone, or tablet.

 NYSCA - ENG 1,  Polish, Spanish.

The application is translated into nine languages other than English. In the account, you can see a child’s:

  • Attendance • Grades (SCHOOL REPORT CARD) • Assessments (test scores) • Health information (Fitness-gram) • Schedule • Guardians • Enrollment history • Promotion Tracker • Graduation Tracker • Reading Level • Transportation

How to Create an Account:

You can create your NYC Schools Account online at mystudent.nyc . You will need the Account Creation Code that was sent home with your child in a letter with your report card during Parent-Teacher conferences. In addition to this code, you will need the child’s 9-digit student ID number (found on your child’s report card) to create an NYC Schools Account or to add additional children to an existing account.

Parent NYCSA Sign-Up Guide - The guide provides a visual step-by-step on setting up your account. Also, take a look at the video for the setup process https://vimeo.com/497731682 

You can request your child’s account creation code and student ID by contacting me, Ms. Deise Kowalski, Parent Coordinator at DKowalski@schools. nyc. gov

Emergency Alerts

If you are a parent who lives with your child, or a custodial or non-custodial guardian, you can update your own cell phone number and email address in your NYC Schools Account, using the Emergency Contact page found under My Account. The cell phone number you provide will be used by the DOE to contact you directly in the event of an emergency. We recommend reaching out to your child’s school to confirm that their records reflect your updated contact information and preferences.

You can now invite other adults who are associated with your child's school record to have their own account.

You can invite relatives, the babysitter, a neighbor, or tutor, or a parent who lives in a different place, or anyone
else who you feel is important to share your child’s information with. However, as some of this information is
kept private by schools, we ask you to consider carefully whom you will invite. You control how much or how
little information you want to share with them. For more information: NYCSAParentFlyer_2017.pdf
