  2. Welcome to NYC Chancellor Richard A. Carranza!

    Morning Bell! Absolutely love the concept ….interactive tool… finger tips access to assisting parents & students with DOE. Please keep in mind some parents are tech challenge and not all homes have technology.

    Also some folks prefer speaking to a live person or want and need one on one contact for assistance to navigate DOE policies/system. I appreciate the efforts made for more transparency and access to information for educators …parents and the 1.1 million public schools students.

    We hope the Chancellor Richard A. Carranza can visit our school soon:PS M517; located in Central Harlem; District Five!



  3. Thanks! Would you know if this calendar will be provided as a .ics file for easy calendar importing?
