NYC Schools Account

Parents stand with their two children in front of a colorful mural.NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) is an app that helps you track your child’s education. Through NYCSA, you can see their grades, attendance, fitness results, schedule, and more.

NYCSA works on any computer, phone, or tablet, and can be read in ten languages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, English, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.

Create an account

There are two ways to create a NYCSA account, either at your child’s school or online. You can only register an account if you are the parent or legal guardian of a student.

You do not need to create separate accounts for multiple children.

  • To register at a school, bring a valid photo ID (like your passport, driver’s license, or IDNYC), and your child’s nine-digit student ID number, which can be found on your child’s report card.
  • To register online, you must have the unique NYC Schools Account Creation Code from a letter your school sent you about NYCSA. Enter this code, and your child’s nine-digit student ID number, into the create account page.
    If you do not have a creation code, or the school did not send you a letter about NYCSA, you will have to register in-person at a school.

After registering your account, we will send you an email to confirm your email address. Click on the link in the message to validate your account.

Add a student

Once you create an account, you can add more students to your account.

Click on the “Add Student” page, then follow the prompts to add your child’s nine-digit student ID number and Account Creation Code.

Sharing Access

You can invite other adults—like relatives or a tutor—to see information about your child on NYCSA. Some of the information on NYCSA is private, so be careful about who you invite.

To invite someone to NYCSA, log into your account and click on the Manage User Access page, to send an invitation to that adult’s email address. They will be prompted to enter your child’s nine- digit student ID and an Account Creation Code.
From this page, you can control how much information other users are able to see. You can assign a user to one of three roles:

  • Custodial users can see all information available about a child in your NYCSA account. Parents have this level when they register an account.
  • Noncustodial users can only see part of the information available.
  • Additional users can only see information the custodial user lets you see.

If you were invited to access a NYCSA account and suddenly see less information than you are used to, it means someone changed your role.

Updating Your Contact Information

If you are a parent who lives with your child, or a custodial or non-custodial guardian, you can update your own cell phone number and email address in your NYC Schools Account, using the Emergency Contact page found under My Account.

The cell phone number you provide will be used by the DOE to contact you directly in the event of an emergency. We recommend reaching out to your child’s school to confirm that their records reflect your updated contact information and preferences.

When you sign in to your NYCSA account, you will see a pop-up message reminding you to update your emergency contact information, including your cell phone number and email address. You may click Update Now to go directly to the Emergency Contact page.

If you need to update your home phone number, you must contact your school directly to make the change(s), as this feature is not yet available.


The information stored in NYCSA is secured and protected by 128-bit SSL encryption. Information about your child is protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
