    Greetings Carver Families,

    It’s time for the 15th annual NYC School Survey!  Every year, families and teachers in grades 3-K through 12 and students in grades 6–12  across New York City share their thoughts on their experiences in and out of the classroom over the past school year. Don’t miss your opportunity to provide your school with valuable feedback! Complete the NYC School Survey online at NYCSchoolSurvey.org today.

    To take the survey, just visit the NYCSchoolSurvey.org website and enter the letter “f” (lowercase) followed by your child’s nine-digit Student Identification (OSIS) Number in the access code text box. You can find your child’s Student Identification Number on their report card, student ID card, or New York City Schools Account (NYCSA). Please reach out to your school if you need support identifying your child’s Student Identification Number. The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, June 11.

    Your feedback makes a difference! Survey results will be shared with schools over the summer to help them plan for the new school year, and released publicly to New York City families and students with the School Quality Report in the fall of 2021.

    We look forward to hearing from you!
