District Leadership

Under New York State law, all schools are overseen by superintendents. New York City has 45 superintendents. Some are tied to the city’s geographic school districts, some to school grade level, and others to the special needs of their students.

All of them, however:

  • Communicate Department of Education policy to both schools and the public
  • Support communities by communicating with:
    • District Leadership Teams (DLTs)
    • Presidents’ Councils
    • Parent Associations (PA/PTAs)
    • Community Education Councils (CECs) and the Citywide Council of High Schools (CCHS)
  • Supervise and evaluate school principals
  • Appoint principals in district schools
  • Approve principal, assistant principals, and teacher tenure decisions
  • Approve school budgets, ensuring they are aligned to the schools’ Comprehensive Education Plan

District Support Team

Districts have staff who can help families. If you cannot resolve an issue or get help at your child's school, you can contact district teams to help. Aside from the superintendent, there are Family Support Coordinators and Family Leadership Coordinators:

  • A Family Support Coordinator is the person you should contact if there is a problem at your child’s school that you cannot resolve with school staff. You should always start at your child's school as outlined on our Connect with Us page, under Get Help.
  • A Family Leadership Coordinator works with groups that support parent-leadership in schools, such as Parent and Parent-Teacher Associations (PA/PTA), School Leadership Teams (SLT) and Community Education Councils (CEC).

Contact Your District

Below is a list of superintendents and their support teams. To find the superintendent, family leadership, or family support coordinator for the district, find the district in which the school is located. If you do not know the district in which your child's school is located, use the Find a School tool.
