NYC Parentleaders

Due to a positive response from parents across the city applying for Community and Citywide Education Council seats, we are extending the CEC application deadline to Monday, March 16, at 11:59 pm. This five-day extension gives parents who haven’t applied a second chance to get involved in shaping education policy for New York City.
Over 900 parents have already applied for an Education Council seat –more than double the number of applications received in this same time frame in 2013.  We are committed to getting even more applications by urging families to get involved and join the #RaiseYourHandNYC movement and apply for a seat at NYCparentleaders.org .
Updated Selection Process Schedule:
February 11 - March 16 – Parents interested in running for a seat on an Education Council submit an application online (computers are available at schools, enrollment centers, district offices, and libraries).  
March 18 - April 18 – District and Borough Presidents’ Councils, along with FACE, host forums for Selectors and parents to meet and ask questions of Education Council candidates.
April 19 - May 8 – Presidents, Treasurers, and Recording Secretaries of PA/PTAs vote online.
May 12 – The results are published on NYCParentLeaders.org.
July 1 – Elected and appointed Community and Citywide Education Council Members for the 2015-17 term take office.
