Delivery Timing 

The DOE is receiving shipments of approximately 50,000 iPads per week, from Apple. Our partners at IBM then “stage” the iPads, which means connecting them to the internet, adding all necessary applications, incorporating them to the DOE device management system, and enabling content filtering. Once they are staged, the iPads will be are assigned to individual students and shipped out to students.

  • The week of March 23: the first shipment of iPads will make their way to students across New York City, prioritizing students living in shelters. iPads are being delivered in bulk to shelters, and a shelter employee will distribute them to individual students.
  • The week of March 30: we will continue to prepare, pack and deliver the iPads that arrive from Apple to students in temporary housing, emergency shelters, youth shelters, and foster care, as well as high school students (see below).
  • The week of April 6: we will focus on delivery to high school students, focusing on multilingual learner students, students with disabilities, and students who live in public housing. iPads will be distributed on a rolling basis with new shipments arriving and being staged each week. 
  • Students who have requested an iPad, but are not in the above groups, will be eligible to receive iPads after deliveries have been made to the above groups.



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 Request form. 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 need to be returned.

  • There is a limit of one device per student
  • Families with multiple students will need to fill out a separate form for each device needed
  • The device should be used only to access remote learning activities
  • The device is being loaned for the student’s use during remote learning
    • The device is the property of the NYCDOE and contains a tracking device so that the device can be located.
    • The device must be returned when on-site learning resumes, unless otherwise instructed by the NYCDOE

The Division of Multilingual Learners is developing guidance for schools on how to enhance instruction of our ELLs and MLLs in different settings, including bilingual classrooms, integrated ENL, and standalone ENL, to a remote learning environment.   

Special Education 

Schools started contacting families this week to begin arrangements for special education programs and related services through remote learning, and will be given a template for creating specific remote learning plans for special education students. We will be holding IEP meetings by phone, and we are looking into the possibility of conducting assessments remotely as much as possible. 


Meal Hubs 

Free breakfast and lunch is available to all New Yorker City students at meal hubs across the city from 7:30am until 1pm during the week.  Families can pick up breakfast, lunch and dinner at once, and no identification or registration is required.  There will be over 400 meal hubs across the city, and families can find a meal hub location online, or by calling 877-877 FOOD.  


Family Welcome Centers and P311 

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:
