Alternative Process for Issuing Working Papers During COVID-19 School Closures

To apply for working papers, follow these directions to upload the two documents you need to our NYC DOE district office.  

The documents are 1) a doctor’s note stating you are physically fit to work and 2)The  AT-17 fillable PDF form.  

Here’s the link to the AT-17 fillable PDF: AT-17 Application for Employment Certificate. Fill out only Part 1 of the AT-17 and make sure it includes a parent’s or guardian’s signature.  This form allows digital signatures to be entered directly on the form.

Next, upload both the doctor’s note and fillable PDF to this dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/request/hUqiXXmIUNNCF8f3k62o

Certificating Officers from the NYC DOE district office will then complete the working card, sign it, and mail it to your home address.  You should sign the working card upon receipt.

* The requirement that the minor sign the card in the presence of the certificating officer has been temporarily waived for the duration of New York’s COVID-19 school closures.

2020 SCHOOL SURVEY DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JUNE 26! - WE ARE ASKING ALL PARENTS TO PLEASE COMPLETE!

ALL SURVEYS ARE ONLINE DUE TO THE COVID-19 'NYC PAUSE'.

Each year, all families, teachers, and students in grades 6-12 take the NYC School Survey to share feedback about their schools. Survey feedback can help improve our schools’ learning environment. You can take this year’s survey anytime until June 26, 2020. We cannot track who fills out surveys as it is completely confidential, thus messages and reminders will continue throughout the survey period. We thank you for acting early! Please feel free to disregard reminders after you respond to your survey.

How does your feedback help our school?

  • Your feedback helps us understand what you think our school does well and how you think we can improve.

  • Survey results allow us to reflect on how well we are achieving our school’s goals and mission.

  • School leaders use feedback from the survey to reflect and make improvements to schools and programs. Survey results are also used to help measure school quality.

  • The 2019 NYC School Survey results are available in the School Quality Guide under the "NYC School Survey Results and Quality Review" tab.

Here’s more helpful information:

What should parents/guardians do if they have more than one child in this school?

  • Parents/guardians should complete one survey per school. If a parent/guardian has more than one child in the same school, the parent/guardian should fill out only one survey based on the experience of the oldest child in that school. If a parent/guardian has children enrolled in multiple schools, the parent/guardian should fill out one separate survey for each school.

Is the online survey translated?

Yes. The online survey for parents/guardians and students is provided in English as well as nine additional languages offered by the NYCDOE: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Urdu. The online survey is available at NYCSchoolSurvey.org.
