NYC Schools Account Enhancement

A new feature has been added to NYC Schools Account (NYCSA), which will require all parents or guardians who use NYCSA to validate their email address in order to continue to view their child’s data. Going forward, after creating their account, all new users will receive an email from NYCSA asking them to click on a link to validate their email address. Upon signing in to their NYC Schools Account, current users will be asked to confirm their email address by September 30, if they have not already done so. Beginning October 1, users who have not yet validated their email address will be unable to access their child’s data in NYCSA until they do so.
