Information for Families

The New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) is the largest system of public schools in the United States, serving 1.1 million students in over 1,700 schools. To find information about your child’s school, use the school search tool to locate the school and the school’s web portal.

Your school offers free interpretation and translation services in all 9 covered languages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Urdu. If you or someone you know needs help, ask your school’s principal, parent coordinator or language access coordinator. You can let us know about the language services at your school by completing this online feedback form.
