Last Day to Vote is TOMORROW for Community and Citywide Education Council Elections! Please share and Vote!

Dear NYC Public Schools Staff:

Thank you for all of the work you do on behalf of our students and families. This is an important time of year to strengthen the critical partnership that we have with our parents and families.

Voting is currently underway in the Community and Citywide Education Council elections. The councils play a vital role in giving parents a real voice in the future of their schools and in strengthening the connection between our families and our educators, and I’m asking for your help in ensuring the largest possible turnout for the elections.

Please help us in spreading the word to your school community networks and encourage parents to vote in CCEC elections before the May 9 deadline. And if you are an NYC Public Schools parent, make sure you take time to learn about the candidates and vote!

Parents vote through their NYC Schools Account with their students linked. Parents who do not have an account can sign up at And anyone who needs help voting or wants to learn more can speak with their school’s parent coordinator.

More information is available on the CCEC Election page.

Parents are our most important partners in educating our students, and this is an important way to make sure that partnership is as powerful as it can be.

Thank you. 

Soaring high, 

David C. Banks
