NYC students and families: let’s talk about ‘next year.’

As the epic 2019–2020 school year draws to a close, staff members across the NYC Department of Education are hard at work preparing for the 2020–2021 school year.

However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot reliably predict what September will look like for City schools—and so, out of necessity, and in consultation with public health experts, we would like to hear from you as we explore different options for City schools this fall.

We invite all guardians of students in grades 3-K through 12, as well as all students in grades 6–12, to take the DOE’s official Return to School 2020 Survey.

Available in ten languages, including Spanish, Chinese, and Arabic, this survey will help us understand what is most important to you for when we return to school in the fall. The survey is short and anonymous, and you can skip any question that you are not comfortable answering or may not apply to you. Parents who have more than one child in the family attending City public schools should fill out a survey for each child

In a few weeks, we will announce a separate survey for DOE staff members, including City teachers and school personnel—so please stay tuned to The Morning Bell and to our official DOE social media accounts for updates!

Know someone who cannot take the survey online? Please have them call 311 to complete a survey over the phone.

We look forward to hearing from City students and families —but please don’t delay; the survey closes on Tuesday, June 30, so please let us know your thoughts TODAY!
