PARENTS AND STUDENTS: INSTRUCTIONS TO RETRIEVE YOUR NEW NYCSTUDENTS ACCOUNT
Guidance on iPad Requests and Returns
As previously noted in the July 20 edition of Principals Digest, families can use the DOE Remote Learning Device request form to notify schools of their technology needs. Schools can manage device requests from families using the centrally-available iPad inventory, which will be distributed based on high-need priorities such as vulnerable populations (e.g., students in temporary housing (STH), foster care), and students who lack internet connectivity at home. In order to help schools to identify families still in need of devices, the DOE is asking that parents fill out the Remote Learning Device request form by August 31 (though the form will remain open throughout the year for parents to use to notify schools of new device and internet-connectivity needs). The August 31 deadline for families will give schools time to assess the needs of their students and plan to fill them by the beginning of the school year. Schools will be able to use the RLD Report to see family requests. Parents can also call the DIIT help desk for assistance. As a reminder and as noted in the August 13 edition of Principal Digest, families who have iPads should plug in, turn on, and reconnect DOE-loaned devices, as explained on the Getting Started with Your iPad InfoHub page. During the week of August 24, the DOE will poll families who need to return iPads (e.g., graduating seniors or students who are leaving the DOE) to determine if those students have returned DOE-loaned devices to a school, or if they still have the device. Any student who still has a device will receive instructions and a prepaid box to mail the iPad back to the DOE. These devices will be inventoried and centrally redistributed to support any schools with high-need students and no device inventory. For questions, please contact the DIIT Help Desk at 718-935-5100.
Learning Bridges Family Interest Form
For students in grades 3-K–8, who are participating in blended learning, Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free childcare options on the days when students are scheduled for remote-learning instruction, for the same time period as the remote-learning instructional period. The Learning Bridges programs will:
Be operated by community-based organizations and other partners;
Provide opportunities for children to connect to remote-learning activities;
Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities;
Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools.
Middle School 890 is a place of learning where students' talents are appreciated and nurtured. We encourage a genuine enthusiasm for learning by strategically planning opportunities for enrichment that foster enjoyment and engagement. Teachers work collaboratively to ensure that content is closely aligned to rigorous standards and to the real world. Parents are actively involved in the planning and delivery of enrichment opportunities. All members of the school community – from students and teachers to administration and families – are viewed as learners and commit to deepen their understanding of the world to ultimately make it a better place.
