Email Updating Service
In order to stay up to date with all the changes of admission procedures and deadlines that are taking place each season within the Department of Education, Robin offers an Email Updating service.
Keep Up With the Changes
It is extremely difficult for parents, and nursery or elementary schools, to keep up with all the changes of admission procedures and deadlines that are taking place each season within the Department of Education. To address this need, I have initiated an Email Updating Service for Kindergarten admission. As soon as I receive any relevant information in regards to Manhattan or Citywide G&T programs, procedures, deadlines, tours or important community meetings, I email this information to all members of my Updating Service.
Relevant Information in a Timely Manner
My information is compiled from my interactions with administrators in the Department of Education, at Hunter College Campus Schools, the Hunter College Center for Gifted Studies, the Citywide G&T programs, as well as from directors at Insideschools.org, members of Community Education Councils, members of the City Council and the media. In addition, I continually review the district parent listserves at yahoogroups.com, local newspapers and the Department of Education website. Finally, I attend or consult with those who have attended pertinent community meetings.
While parents have access to much of the above information, my personal contacts often it make it easier for me to receive and clarify information, and I provide the service of sorting through all the materials to provide you with only the most relevant information in a timely manner. Please note that I will clarify issues related to an update of a general matter, but any questions of a personal nature will be subject to my consulting fees, and families will be so advised.
