For families who have never used MySchools before, their personalized welcome letter will help them set up their MySchools account and add their child using their unique account creation code.
For families who have already used MySchools in a previous year, they just need to log in! They can re-set their MySchools password if needed. If a family logs into MySchools and does not see their child’s name on the Dashboard page, that’s okay--they just need their welcome letter and they should follow the instructions there.
Non-public schools (private, parochial, independent, etc.) can now add their current 8th grade and/or 9th grade students to MySchools who want to participate in NYC High School Admissions, including registering for the SHSAT.
Testing Accommodations on the SHSAT:
- Students who already receive testing accommodations on their assessments in school are entitled to testing accommodations on the SHSAT. This includes:
- Students with existing testing accommodations on their current IEP.
- Students with an existing 504 Plan that includes testing accommodations.
- Students who are English Language Learners (ELL) or eligible former English Language Learners.
