As many of you know, NYS test scores have been released. We are in the process of looking at the data for our school. I will be sharing results with the school community in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, parents of students who took the tests can access their children’s scores through their NYC Schools Account. This is an informational account for parents that has information on attendance and test scores and is the account that will be used for this information for your children as long as they are in New York City public schools.
Some parents have set up these accounts already. (Letters have gone home several times with the instructions.) Click here for information on NYC Schools Account registration.
If you have not yet set up an account, this is the perfect opportunity to do so. Unfortunately, it is a bit complicated. In order to set up an account, you need two pieces of information.
- Your child’s OSIS number. This is the 9-digit identification number assigned to your child in the DOE computer system. It is on your child’s report card. You should keep this number stored somewhere as you may need it whenever navigating DOE systems.
- A secure code for your child. The only way we currently have of getting this number to you is through a hard copy letter. Susan will generate a new set of these letters early next week. These letters are only available in pdf as a group file. We cannot email individual letters to you. You can come in to pick up your letter next week.
I wish that this process were more user friendly. Right now, this is the only method we have.
