Announcement #2:                                DOE Survey Extension until June 26th

Given the current circumstances, and the focus on remote learning for school communities, The Department of Education (DOE) parent survey deadline has been extended until June 26th, in order to ensure as much opportunity as possible for respondents to have their voices heard. You should have received the survey in a green envelope that BSA mailed a couple of weeks ago. Please complete the survey provided in the green envelope and mail it as soon as you can. If you did not receive it, the survey can be completed online. All caregivers can now retrieve their access code online using the code lookup tool on the survey login page.

The survey is designed to collect important information about each school’s ability to support student success. Each year, all parents, teachers, and students in grades 6-12 take the NYC School Survey. The survey is aligned to the DOE’s Framework for Great Schools. It is designed to collect important information about each school’s ability to support student success. School leaders can use feedback from the survey to reflect and improve schools and programs. Please contact me if you have any questions.
