Please see the message below from Chancellor Porter:
Since March, I have had the honor of a lifetime to serve as Chancellor for the incredible schools, educators, students, communities and families that make up the New York City Department of Education, the nation’s largest school district. Today, I am sharing the bittersweet news that I will be stepping down from my role at the end of the calendar year. As a lifelong educator, graduate of New York City public schools, and the first black woman to be appointed Chancellor, I know and care deeply for every community and New Yorker who is part of our DOE family, which is why I’m thrilled to announce that my work in public service will continue. In the new year, I will carry on my dedication to New York City families by serving as the inaugural President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Bronx Community Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting the Bronx.
The trust, patience, kindness, and commitment to our schools you have shown has left me in awe. With your partnership and hard work that never stopped, every single school this year welcomed their students back to in-person learning that was supportive, rigorous and most of all, safe. Our school reopening has been nationally lauded in meeting the needs of children, families and staff in a school year like no other – this year of homecoming. Together, we:
Set the gold-standard health and safety protocols, resulting in an incredibly low in-school positivity rate of 0.24 this school year. We ensured this was a collaborative effort with the city’s health experts, families, community leaders, employees and more, and schools have served as neighborhood hubs of the COVID-19 response through in-school vaccination sites with over 43,000 students vaccinated, over 1 million free meals given out to NYC residents, and the distribution of 650,000 devices to students across the City. And you kept our students and staff safe by getting vaccinated.
Created Summer Rising, a bridge back to in person learning for 200,000 students at almost 800 sites across the five boroughs that innovated and expanded on traditional summer school. Summer Rising gave families an opportunity to reengage with their school communities as they too returned to normal routines including going back to in-person work. Your leadership was critical in supporting the City’s recovery.
Launched a bold, rigorous Academic Recovery Plan, an academic framework that gets to know each and every student’s academic and social emotional needs through our universal screeners, focuses on early literacy, develops students as digital citizens, prepares students for college and careers, invests in special education services, expands social and emotional learning supports, and builds the foundation for our “Mosaic Curriculum,” a universal curriculum for all schools that reflects New York City’s diverse students. We’ve heard how critically important this effort is to our students, families and educators, and I’m committed to ensuring that the important work of seeing our students in our materials continues.
Reimagined an equitable way to deliver accelerated learning through the launch of Brilliant NYC, a new way to deliver accelerated learning to every child and dismantle segregated Gifted and Talented classes. Centered on community feedback, Brilliant NYC engagement opportunities are being offered in every single neighborhood in New York City to hear directly from parents, students, and most importantly, our educators who know the immense potential of every single one of our students.
This would not have been possible without your leadership and dedication to keeping our students safe and healthy, to getting to know their educational needs even better than before, and to providing them with stronger and all-encompassing supports to meet their potential. I know each and every school community has done even more for their students and families than what I can possibly share here. Despite the challenges we’ve endured, we’ve endured them together, and I believe we have a laid a foundation that provides opportunities for every child to soar and move forward toward a brighter future . I’m committed to seeing through this collective work and shared vision for all our students today, tomorrow and beyond. And I know in your hands, our students will continue to be well-served.
With deepest appreciation,
Chancellor, New York City Public Schools
