What is the NYC Schools Account?
NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) is a web-based application that lets parents and guardians view their student’s attendance, grades, and other key educational details in one of ten languages on a computer, smartphone, or tablet.
Student information is protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The information stored in the NYC Schools Account is secured and protected by 128-bit SSL encryption. Visit the NYCDOE website to learn more.
How do I create an account?
You must be the student’s parent or legal guardian and live at the same address to create an account. If you have more than one child attending a NYC school, you can link them all to the same NYC Schools account. You can create an NYC Schools Account in person or online.
Make an appointment with our Parent Coordinator, Guidance Counselor, or Family Assistant. Due to student privacy concerns, this process cannot be done via phone or email.
Make sure to bring:
- a valid photo ID (passport, driver’s license or IDNYC)
- your email address
- your child’s 9-digit student ID number (this can be found on his or her report card).
After creating the account, you will receive a receipt with your temporary password. Then go online and navigate to the NYCSA login page. Enter your email address and temporary password. Upon signing in for the first time, you will need to select and answer three security questions and validate your email address.
To create an NYC Schools Account online (or to add additional children to an existing account), you will need:
