NYC Schools Account:

Parents and Guardians: We’ve made it easier to sign up for a NYC Schools Account (NYCSA). Setting up a basic account will allow you to get emergency notifications from the DOE. (It is also necessary to view your child's report card beginning June 29th)

You can create a basic account online from any computer, phone, or tablet. All you need to do is:

· Go to https://mystudent.nyc/saa/signup

· Set up the account by:

o Entering your name and email address

o Creating a password

o Answering a few brief security questions so you can reset the password if you forget it.

Once you do that you will be able to see your child’s grades, test scores, and attendance.

If you need any assistance, please reach out to our Parent Coordinator, Karen Caroccio at kcaroccio@schools.nyc.gov
