To help students stay connected during emergencies, the DOE is lending internet-enabled iPads to support remote learning for students. If you would like to request a device for a NYC student in your family, please fill out the form below. The DOE will use the contact information you provide to get in touch with you to discuss when and where you can pick up a device. Priority will be given to students most in need, and all devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned. There is a limit of one device per student.  CLICK HERE


The Mayor and Chancellor want to know remote learning has been working for students and families. We are asking all parents/guardians of DOE students in any grade and all students in grades six through twelve to take a short survey to help us collect feedback about their experience with remote learning. The survey is:

*Available in all DOE languages (Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu)

*Anonymous for all respondents

*The same for all boroughs (survey is divided by borough to make it easier for you to identify your school name)

*The results of the survey will help schools to continue to support families and students in the current learning environment and should be completed by May 1, 2020.
