Welcome letters are in the mail to families of 8th-grade students who attend public DOE schools and charter schools. Each personalized welcome letter includes an overview of high school admissions, including how to use the DOE’s online school directory and application system, MySchools.nyc.
For families who have never used MySchools before, their personalized welcome letter will help them set up their MySchools account and add their child using their unique account creation code.
For families who have already used MySchools in a previous year, they just need to log in! They can re-set their MySchools password if needed. If a family logs into MySchools and does not see their child’s name on the Dashboard page, that’s okay–they just need their welcome letter and they should follow the instructions there.

Free and Low-Cost Internet Options
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has launched a short-term Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program, which provides broadband internet service for eligible New York City households, at a reduced cost, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All families with a student enrolled in a DOE school or program are eligible for this benefit. Families can confirm their eligibility, apply for the program, and find participating broadband providers via the USAC website. There are two types of benefits available to eligible households:
Monthly Benefit: A discount of up to $50/month for broadband service, equipment, and device rentals; or One-time Device Discount: A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of $10-$50), where available.
Families can visit the FCC’s EBB webpage and view this FAQ to learn more about the EBB program. Translated materials are available via the following links: Spanish, Arabic, Amharic, Burmese, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Somali, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
For questions and support, schools and families should email EBBHelp@usac.org or call (833) 511-0311.
