Message from NYC Department of Education
Beginning next week, you may apply to new schools or programs opening in your community for the 2015-2016 school year! These schools will be pre-populated on the New Middle Schools Application, which will be distributed by your child’s elementary school next week. You will also receive directory pages providing information about each new or expanding school at that time.

How to Apply to New Middle Schools or Schools with New Dual Language Programs
If you are interested in having your child apply to a new middle school or program, you should complete and return the New Middle Schools Application to your child’s elementary school by March 4, 2015.
New Schools Application vs. Main Round Application
The New Middle Schools Application is separate from the main round application you completed in November 2014. If your child participates in the new schools application process, he or she will receive any new school offers in May in the same letter with his or her offer from the original application. Applicants will be able to choose between the new schools offer and the main round offer.
We look forward to helping you along the way!
