  • Complete the 2020 Census

    As we grapple with COVID-19, completing the 2020 Census is even more important now than ever. The number of New Yorkers who are counted will determine how much funding we receive for our schools and public services over the next 10 years. City schools receive more than $781 million every year in Title I funding, based on census data. In addition, the census helps determine funding for early learn centers, in-school and after school youth programs, childcare programs, and other services that support our school communities. You can play an active role in ensuring an accurate count by urging staff and families to complete the census online at, or by calling 844-330-2020, and completing the brief survey, which is open until October 31. Principals should share this information with staff including parent coordinators and families by June 26.

    Please visit the NYC 2020 Census page on InfoHub for strategies and resources to inform and empower your school community to be counted. 

    For questions, email Alexandra Dalrymple.

DOE is committed to keeping regular communication channels in place for families to the fullest extent possible, while ensuring we are keeping our staff safe. To that end, Family Welcome Center (FWC) buildings have been temporarily closed and staff members are working remotely to support families. FWC staff are available by email, contact information by borough below, and are prepared to assist with enrollment and placement of new admissions, questions around admissions, information about offers, and waitlists. There may be higher than usual volume but we are aiming to respond to all requests within 48 hours. 

Our employees at P311, the DOE’s Parent Support Line, are beginning to prepare for remote work beginning next week and will use a remote call management/routing software to avoid disruption in services for P311 callers. Parents can call 311 and say “Schools” to be routed to someone who can assist you.  

Famlies can receive direct support from a FWC staff member by e-mailing your questions to:
