Class Size Matters
There’s not much time left to make your mark on this year’s CCEC Elections
- Morning Bell
From now through our new extended deadline on Thursday, February 23, 2023, all parents/guardians of current New York City public school students can apply to run for seats on any of the City’s 36 Community and Citywide Education Councils (CCEC) during the 2023 CCEC Elections being held later this year.
CCECs are made up of elected and appointed parent volunteers who play vital roles in shaping important decisions in school districts across all five boroughs. Each serving two-year terms, CCEC members have an opportunity to be an advocate for their communities and build relationships with other parents and school leaders along the way.
CCEC member responsibilities include:
- reviewing district educational programs and improvements to school buildings;
- approving zoning lines;
- organizing public meetings and town halls; and
- working together with both district and DOE leaders to make recommendations on a variety of issues
By participating in this year’s elections, whether as a candidate in February, or as a voter later this year, you’ll be making your voice heard and help shape education policies and programs for months and years to come.
Taking the 2023 NYC School Survey
Access and complete the survey linked at NYCSchoolSurvey.org
- If your child is in grades K–12, you will need your child’s nine-digit student identification number, or OSIS, to begin filling out your survey online. You can find the OSIS on your student’s report card, school ID card, or on their NYC Schools Account. Once on the survey page, you must enter “f”, followed by your child’s OSIS to access the survey. Note that the “f” must be lowercase.
- If your child is in 3-K or Pre-K, please contact your child’s school or program to receive your survey access code.
