Summer school programs are for students who are in danger of not being promoted to the next grade. 

Individual schools administer summer school. Families are notified in June if a student will be promoted to the next grade or if summer school is recommended. 

If you have a question about whether your child should attend summer school, contact the principal at your child's school.

You can get more information and assistance with summer school by contacting your child's school.

iPad Request

To support remote learning and help students stay connected during emergencies, the Department of Education (DOE) is lending internet-enabled iPads to:

  • Public school students
  • Private, charter, and parochial school students with disabilities
  • Charter school students who are living in temporary housing or in foster care

To request an iPad for an NYC student in your family, please fill out the request form.

Priority will be given to students most in need. All iPads are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned. There is a limit of one iPad per student.

It may take a few weeks to process your request and deliver the iPad. You can get learn-at-home materials and activities on DOE's website for your student to work on without a device.
