Superintendents

What do Superintendents do?

Under New York State law, all schools are overseen by superintendents. New York City has 46 superintendents. Some are tied to the city’s geographic school districts, some to school grade level, and others to the special needs of their students.

All of them, however:

  • Communicate Department of Education policy to both schools and the public
  • Support communities by communicating with:
    • District Leadership Teams (DLTs)
    • Presidents’ Councils
    • Parent Associations (PA/PTAs)
    • Community Education Councils (CECs) and the Citywide Council of High Schools (CCHS)
  • Supervise and evaluate school principals
  • Appoint principals in district schools
  • Approve principal, assistant principals, and teacher tenure decisions
  • Approve school budgets, ensuring they are aligned to the schools’ Comprehensive Education Plan

Contact Your Superintendent

Below is a list of superintendents. To find the superintendent for your child's school, find the borough in which the school is located and then the district number. Or, if your child attends a school in a special-needs or alternative district, simply look under the district name.

On this page you will also find contact information for Family Leadership Coordinators and Family Support Coordinators.

  • A Family Leadership Coordinator works with groups that support parent-leadership in schools, such as Parent and Parent-Teacher Associations (PA/PTA), School Leadership Teams (SLT) and Community Education Councils (CEC).
  • A Family Support Coordinator is the person you should contact if there is a problem at your child’s school.

If you do not know the district in which your child's school is located, use the Find a School tool:

You don’t have to start with your superintendent to get help. Find out more on the Get Help page:

If you want a printable version of the list of superintendents, visit the Google Doc version.
