Apply for School Meals Online!
Visit www.NYC.gov/accessnyc to apply for School Meals online. Families only need to submit one application online for all their children, even if their children attend different types of schools (public, private, or charter).

Common Core Standards
New York State recently adopted a new set of learning standards known as Common Core Standards. These standards will phase in gradually through 2015. The common core standards clearly lay out what students should know and be able to do at every grade to ensure they are college and career ready.
This year all New York City schools will incorporate Common Core Standards into classroom assignments. For more information please click here
