Our Feb. 7 Insideschools event "Applying to Kindergarten" is fully booked. All RSVPs are now going on a waitlist. Everyone who is on the waitlist is welcome to come at 8 p.m. for a Q&A session. And, we'll be live-streaming the event on Insideschools.org. If you would like Insideschools to host more workshops, please tell our co-sponsor, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. You may email her office at email@example.com.
Clara Hemphill, along with the Insideschools staff members and other school experts, will offer guidance about what to look for in an elementary school, how and when to register, and how to explore your options if you're not happy with the schools in your neighborhood.
We'll cover gifted and talented programs, magnet schools, unzoned schools, special education and options for children learning to speak English.
Panelists will include Sonya hooks, senior director of the Education Department's charter school office, Robin Aronow of School Search NYC, Randi Levine, staff attorney at Advocates for Children, and Lainie Leber of the DOE's magnet program office.
A Q&A session will follow the presentation at 8 p.m.
The event is co-sponsored by City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and the Center for New York City Affairs at The New School.
