Family Resources

  • As a parent, you play a key role in determining the program that best matches the academic and cultural needs of your child. We look forward to working with you to make those decisions and appreciate your participation in your child's education. Feel free to ask parent coordinators and staff members at your child’s school about ELL programs.
  • (including the Home Language Identification Survey, Parent Survey and Program Selection Forms, useful resources from the ELL Parent Information Case and other important notifications to parents of ELLs.)
  • Dream, Believe, Succeed!  A College Planning Handbook for English Language Learners and their Families
    Created for current and former ELLs, this handbook includes information about how to navigate New York City’s school system as an ELL, high school graduation requirements, a timeline for college planning, tips on selecting a college or university, options for paying for college, and much more. The handbook aims to help students achieve their dreams of a college degree and successful career.
  • The Office of English Language Learners held a contest for current and former ELLs as well as any student enrolled in a dual language program. 

  • Our office invites you to join us at various events and workshops which we sponsor throughout the year. Also, for information about Adult Education classes, including English for Speakers of Other Languages, click here.
