Chancellor Forums in Manhattan and Queens Next Week!

Chancellor Meisha Porter launched a five-borough family engagement tour to hear directly from school communities about their top educational priorities for next school year.  In light of unprecedented investments from local, state and federal, government, these forums will serve as an opportunity for families, teachers, school administrators and staff to provide Department of Education (DOE) leadership with their thoughts on the types of resources and support that are needed as we move towards a full reopening in September.

Virtual forums will be held on the following dates:


Manhattan – Monday, May 24, 2021, from 6-8:30pm

Queens – Thursday, May 27, 2021, from 6-8:30pm


Chancellor Porter will be joined by Executive Superintendents and leadership from the DOE to help answer questions and to facilitate a productive conversation with the community.  Families and staff can register for the forums online at At the time of registration, participants will be asked if they want to ask a question or provide a comment during the event about a number of categories, including health and safety, special education, fall 2021 school reopening, social emotional learning, and more. 


Each forum will be recorded and posted so that school communities may access them at any time. Interpretation services will be available at every forum.
