New York : The DOE is opening nine temporary Registration Centers across the five boroughs to make it easy for new students to enroll in school, and assist families who may have questions. The Registration Centers are open from Wednesday, August 31 through Friday, September 16 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Centers are closed on September 5 for Labor Day and September 12 for Eid al-Adha.
All information below about new student registration is on these flyers in ten languages, for inclusion in your outlets: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.
New high school students, who are not currently enrolled in a school, must register at a Registration Center. Additionally, students who live in a neighborhood without zoned schools, and who are not enrolled in a school, should visit a Registration Center. New elementary and middle school students who have zoned schools, should register at their zoned schools starting Thursday, September 8.
Parents can find their zoned schools by visiting www.nyc.gov/schools or calling 311. All locations provide over-the-phone interpretation and live interpretation services in select languages. All forms and parent materials are available in English and translated into nine languages.
Students with a non-New York City IEP should visit one of the Registration Centers. Students with more restrictive or specialized needs may also visit a Committee on Special Education (CSE) location. For more information, including CSE locations, call 311 or visit www.nyc.gov/schools.
In addition, the DOE will have specially trained staff at each site to help families looking to enroll their child in pre-K. Pre-K seats are still available, and all families with children born in 2012 can still enroll in a free, full-day, high quality pre-K program. Families can access a list of programs with available seats on the Pre-K Finder (http://maps.nyc.gov/prek). For assistance, families can fill out the Get in Touch form on our website –https://maps.nyc.gov/upk/get-in-touch.html – and an enrollment specialist will call them directly to help them through the process. Families with questions about pre-K admissions may also call 718-935-2009.
