Our Schools


  • The Strong Schools, Strong Communities plan will lift up the entire system of New York City public schools to support all students. This plan leverages strengthened partnerships between parents, teachers, students, school leaders, and communities and comprehensive initiatives for schools.
  • The New York City Department of Education is committed to working collaboratively with parents, educators, school communities, and external stakeholders to improve student achievement and ensure that every child graduates from high school prepared for college, a career, and a future as a productive, critically thinking adult.
  • Community Superintendents manage schools that serve grades K-8, while High School Superintendents manage our high schools. The Family Support Coordinators provide a local avenue for parents to address concerns.
  • Through a $52 million Attendance Improvement and Dropout Intervention (AIDP) grant, the Department of Education will launch 45 new Community Schools in the fall of 2015.
  • In fall 2015, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chancellor Carmen Farina announced an ambitious set of goals for New York City schools: By 2026, 80% of our students will graduate high school on time, and two-thirds of our students will be college ready. The eight initiatives that comprise the Equity and Excellence agenda will ensure all students receive a world-class education and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
  • Technology is infused in all that we do. It's not an add-on or a nice-to-have; it's a driver and enabler of the way we work and live in the 21st century.
