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.
