DOE Leadership Structures

Opportunities for parent leadership and advocacy exist within the NYC school system at the school, district, and citywide levels. These opportunities are meant to grant parents meaningful roles as partners in their children’s educations and the system in general, allowing them, for example, to impact policy by advising the Chancellor on certain issues, approve zoning decisions, help design schools’ educational plans, consult on the selection of a new principal or assistant principal, and serve as the voice for other parents in advocating for their children.
