Updates For Families

December 22, 2020
Dear Families,
Before we part for Winter Recess, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for all you have done to keep the
learning going during this unforgettable year.
Our families and educators are the hearts and souls of our school communities, and everything we have gotten
right this year, we owe to you. To the sacrifices you have made to ensure your children thrive in an era of blended
and remote learning. To your trust in our public schools. To your personal feedback to me²whether positive or
negative, it has helped me and everyone at the DOE better serve you and your children.
Although the holidays will look very different this year, there is still much to celebrate. I hope you take time to
rejoice, relax, connect with loved ones near and far²and reflect on the acts of kindness and compassion that have
lifted your lives these past 12 months.
As we look ahead to the rest of the school year, we are unwavering in our focus to deliver the highest-quality
education possible to each of your children. We do this to prepare them for a successful, productive life,
empowered with the skills they need to chase their dreams. To that end, last week we announced changes to the
middle and high school admissions process, which will oSeQௗiQ JaQXaU\. BegiQQiQg Qe[W \eaU, RXU middle VchRRlV
will not use academic records, auditions, or other screens or assessments to evaluate or admit students, and high
schools will phase out geographic priorities. This will result in a fairer process for all New York City public
school families. To learn more, please visit or
We kQRZ WheUe¶V mRUe WR dR, aQd Ze aUe XQiWed iQ RXU miVViRQ WR make VXUe \RXU child²and every one of their
1.1 million peers²receives the best education possible in the greatest city in the world.
On behalf of all of us at the Department of Education, I wish you and your loved ones a beautiful holiday season
and a happy new year. Please stay safe and well, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021!
Richard A. Carranza
New York City Department of Education
