In Your Language

NYC Public Schools Speak Your Language!

Parents have the right to receive information or communicate with a staff member at their school or Department of Education (DOE) office in their language.

If you or someone you know needs help, tell your school’s principal or parent coordinator, call the DOE at (718) 935-2013 or email

You may also download and print the Parent's Guide to Language Access, which includes an I Speak card. Bring it with you when you visit your child’s school or DOE office to request assistance in your language.

For sign language interpretation services, please contact your school’s parent coordinator or the Office of Sign Language Interpreting Services via email
