NYC Schools Account
NYC Schools Account
The NYC Department of Education is requesting that all NYC Public School students have a NYC Schools Account. In this account, you will be able to view your child's state exam scores, attendance, grades, reading level, Fitnessgram results, report cards, and much more. This year you will be able to nominate yourself to be elected to the District 21 Community Education Council, and vote for others to be elected, through this account.
How to create a NYC Schools Account
You will need the Account Creation Code that in previous years has been sent home with your child if they attended PS 128 prior to Sept. 2022 and mailed to homes in October 2020, to all PS 128 families who at that time did not have a NYC Schools Account.
You will need this code and your child’s 9-digit student ID number to create an NYC Schools Account or to add additional children to an existing account.
1. Visit https://mystudent.nyc/ and select the “Create account” link on the login page.
2. Enter your email address and create a new password.
3. Upon signing in for the first time, you will need to select and answer three security questions and
validate your email address.
4. Enter your child’s 9-digitstudent ID number. You can find your child’s ID number on their report
card. If you do not have your child’s ID number, please contact me or the main office.
5. Enter the unique Account Creation Code.
If you need assistance or have questions about navigating your account, contact me, Rose Ann Montemurro, Parent Coordinator, at 718-373-5900, 929-617-5167, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 311.
