New York City Schools Account
If you have not already opened a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA), now is a great time to sign up and make sure that your child’s school can reach you to share important information about end of year activities and the start of the 2022-23 school year!
NYCSA is an easy way to stay connected to your child’s school, offering you access to your child’s grades, schedules, test scores, attendance, Individualized Education Program (IEP) information, bus times, and more. NYCSA allows you to submit essential school forms online and access important announcements from the NYC Department of Education, including news of events happening in your district or citywide.
NYCSA now includes Parent University, a resource hub filled with free courses, events, and activities to help empower you as an advocate for your child’s education. In addition, you will be able to use NYCSA to cast your vote in upcoming elections for candidates who will represent your community on local and citywide Community Education Councils.
How to Sign Up
You can sign up for an account today with just your name and contact information, and then connect the account to your child’s records by contacting your school for verification. Learn more at schools.nyc.gov/nycsa and sign up now at schoolsaccount.nyc(Open external link).
Update Your Contact Information
When you sign in to your NYCSA account, you will see a pop-up message reminding you to update your emergency contact information. You may click Update Now to go directly to the Emergency Contact page. Once you have reviewed and confirmed your information, select “Verified” at the top of the page. Using the Emergency Contact page in your New York City Schools Account, you can update your home, cell, and work phone numbers as well as email addresses. You also have the option to update your preferred written or spoken language.
In addition, you can update your child’s health information to share with your child’s school. This includes your child’s physician name and phone number, any known diagnoses, allergies, limitations that may limit physical activity, and health insurance status.
