Message from Chancellor Richard A. Carranza
“Our City’s incredible teachers know their students’ unique needs better than anyone. Through DonorsChoose, they can use that knowledge to help fund projects that bolster their vision for high-quality instruction in the classroom. We’re grateful for this partnership and for the caring donors helping our school communities become stronger, so that our 1.1 million students can thrive.”

The New York City Department of Education is the largest U.S. school district serving 1.1 million students across more than 1,800 schools. We are committed to providing every single child, in every classroom, in every New York City public school, with a rigorous, inspiring, and nurturing learning experience. That is true regardless of family income, race, nationality, disability, language spoken at home, sexual orientation, or gender identification.

To fulfill that commitment, beginning in 2015 the DOE has pursued an agenda we call Equity and Excellence for All. It begins at the earliest ages with our nationally recognized 3-K and Pre-K for All initiatives, continues in elementary school with our early literacy program, and extends through middle and high school with efforts that include Computer Science for All, Algebra for All, AP for All, and College Access for All.

The Equity and Excellence for All agenda has been central to today’s improved student outcomes, including the highest-ever graduation and college enrollment rates, the lowest-ever dropout rate, and rising scores on state tests.
