Other at Home Resources

While you’re at home with your children, here are some resources to help them stay active and engaged:

DOE Remote Learning Device UPDATE 3-23-2020

DOE  Ipads request and deliveries Update 3-23-2020: 

https://www.schools.nyc.gov/learn-at-home/ipad-distribution

The week of March 23, 2020 the first shipment of 25,000 iPads will make their way to homes across New York City. Students in temporary housing will be the first to receive iPads. They will be delivered in bulk to shelters and foster care centers. A point person is on standby at these locations to receive the shipments and distribute the iPads. We are working with:

  • Department of Homeless Services
  • Human Resources Administration
  • Department of Youth and Community Development

These agencies are helping to reach children in temporary housing, in youth or emergency shelters, and children in foster care so that the students will receive a web enabled iPad delivered to their doorstep through FedEx.

Individual deliveries will be made to all other recipients.

Individual Deliveries

The DOE is contracting with FedEx to deliver iPads directly to students. Your iPad will be shipped to the address you entered on the request form.

If you have already filled out the request form, you will receive a text message or email making sure you have completed the Student Device Loan Agreement. Please complete the agreement when you request a device as your device cannot be shipped unless you have signed the agreement.

Please make sure someone is at the address to accept the delivery, as FedEx will not leave packages unattended. Also, FedEx carriers will adhere to social distancing rules.

NYC Schools Account

 NYC Schools Account 

You play an important role in your child's academic success. Our goal is to give you the information you need to be an informed and active partner in your child's education. We invite you to set up your NYC Schools Account, a is a web-based application that provides a new way for you to view your child's academic and biographic information in one of ten languages on a computer, phone or tablet. 

In the account, you can see a child’s:
 Attendance
 Grades
 Assessments (test scores)
 Health information (Fitnessgram)
 Schedule
 Guardians
 Enrollment history 

*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 


Parents and Legal Guardians are welcome to visit your parent coordinator at the school to sign up or if you have any questions regarding registering for NYC Schools Account.
