Accessing Report Cards

The DOE is asking schools to use a digital method of distributing report cards. The DOE uses a system called NYCSA (New York City Student Account) to share information with parents. NYCSA is a web-based application that lets you see your child's academic and biographic information on any computer, phone or tablet. The application is translated into nine languages for your easy access.You will need to have an active account in order to view your child's report card.

Summer Reading 

Summer Reading is important to keep learning going and to let imaginations run free! The DOE is thrilled to make more e-books and audiobooks for all ages available for free this summer to all DOE families, and it's easier than ever to access them. Please follow the link for more information, and visit for additional details.

Remote Learning Device Loan


The DOE is committed to making sure every student can continue to remain connected for remote learning. If your child is in need of an internet-enabled device for remote learning, please complete the Remote Learning Device Request form. The DOE will prioritize device-distribution for students who will be participating in summer school. In order to ensure that students receive their device by the start of summer school, please make all requests by the following date:


·     By 5:00 p.m. on June 26, for high school students.
