The DOE Charter Office put together an Operations Resource Guide to aide in the important end of year and start of the year tasks. It includes deadline reminders for DOE systems and guidelines on the following topics: Summer School, Enrollment in ATS, Transportation, Per Pupil Funding, Health/Immunization Requirements

ATS Training Video

Welcome to the world of ATS! This training video is a great one-stop resource for the most useful ATS functions and reports. It covers the basics.

Note: If you still need an ATS account, or to request one for a new staff member at your school, complete this form and email it to Tliu2@schools.nyc.gov. As a reminder, ATS users will need a NYC DOE email account that can be obtained through the DOE’s Galaxy system through an administrator at your school.

Staff Handbook

Clear expectations promote strong performances. A comprehensive staff handbook is the best way to ensure all employees understand the professional standards and culture of the school.

Several extensive handbooks are attached, each with particular strengths. SBuffalo’s CS Handbook has thorough sections on social media and computer use and mentions confidentiality of student records. Hebrew CS Center includes well-developed sections on media relations, social media and conflicts of interest, while Excelsior CS is thorough on employment rules and expectations.
