Summer Learning

We want to acknowledge the feedback we heard from you and from families and school communities regarding dates of summer learning.

Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome

Health and safety is our top priority, and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC Health Department) and the Department of Education (DOE) continue to work together to keep the city’s students, families, and staff members safe, healthy, and informed as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic evolves.

Technical Support for Families

If you have ongoing issues with technology to support learning at home, even after visiting our support pages (such as Getting Started with Your iPad, Remote Learning Portal, Getting Started with Google Classroom, Getting Started with Teams) please fill out the Technical Support for Families form.

Free Ipads

To help students stay connected during emergencies, the DOE is lending internet-enabled iPads to support remote learning for students. If you would like to request a device for a NYC student in your family, please fill out the Request form. The DOE will use the contact information you provide to get in touch with you to discuss when and where you can pick up a device. Priority will be given to students most in need, and all devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned.
