Next week, the New York City Department of Education will be hosting what we hope will be the largest online municipal election in history – the 2021 Citywide and Community Education Council Elections!
This year, more than one million parents are eligible to vote, and we are encouraging parents to vote through their online NYCSA account in the comfort of their own homes. This week and next will be about “Getting Out the Vote.” DOE has mailed flyers to families, and advertised across the City - from buses, to radio shows, news media, and more. Next week, we will be robocalling families with a message from the Chancellor reminding everyone to vote.
Voting begins this Saturday, May 1st and continues until Tuesday, May 11th
How can you support?
Ensure your Parent Coordinator is ready to support parents with NYCSA and voting
Please hang your 2021 CCEC Election Banner in front of your school
Please use your school’s twitter, facebook, website, and more to remind parents to vote
Share voting information and resources with your families:
