Interested families can apply one of three ways: Online at MySchools.nyc(Open external link) Through a Family Welcome Center By phone at 718-935-2009 For children entering G&T programs in fall 2021, offers will be made differently this year. We will not be administering a G&T test; instead, families and educators will help identify students for accelerated learning. Sign up for our Gifted & Talented email list: we'll send you updates and reminders throughout the admissions process. Who Can Apply? All families with children born in 2016 who live in New York City—including those who have temporarily relocated due to the COVID-19 pandemic—can apply now to enter G&T programs in fall 2021. We encourage all NYC families with children of this age to apply, including current pre-K public district or charter school students, private or parochial school students, and children who are new to NYC schools. All G&T programs are expected to welcome and support all students including children with accessibility needs, children with disabilities, children who speak a language other than English, and children in temporary housing. All families, regardless of immigration status, are welcome and encouraged to apply!

This is a great opportunity for new families to the District as well as families who may have children moving up into PreK to learn about schools in D5 as well as ask questions!
Parents and Caregivers of CURRENT PreK children and/or those born in 2016. It will be a townhall Gifted and Talented information session presented to families in collaboration with CEC5. It is taking place on Tuesday, March 23rd at 10:00am. Zoom link information is provided below and flyers attached. I would sincerely appreciate it if you could send the flyers and links out to your PreK families and encourage them to attend. I think it would also be great, if possible, for Parent Coordinators to attend.
Dear Families, I am very pleased to let you know that all our remote families will now have one more opportunity to transition to blended learning this school year. This means that if your child is currently learning remotely every day, they will be able to opt in to learning in person in the school building at least part of the week for the remainder of the school year. We will make every effort to provide as many days of in-person learning as possible. For more information on when and How to Opt In to Blended Learning click the link below https://www.nycenet.edu/surveys/learningpreference
