Summer Rising Program 2024

Dear Rocco Laurie Families,

We are excited to once again offer Summer Rising to students in grades K–8 this summer! Thank you for your partnership, as always, in making this program a reality for our students; we are also grateful to our partners at the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD).

Families will be able to apply for Summer Rising seats in MySchools starting next Monday, March 4 until March 25, 2024. Please ensure your staff support your families in the application process, by ensuring they have their student identification and account creation codes needed to apply in MySchools.

Please see the attached letter from NYC Public Schools.

your child’s school is eligible to receive funding.

Please go online to myschoolapps.com to complete the form. Online forms are submitted by using your
student’s 9-digit ID number. After completing you will receive confirmation that your form was
submitted.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

It is also how parents can run and vote in the upcoming 2021 Education Council Elections.   
 
**If you do not have an account, please email Stephanie Montanez- Miniero, Parent Coordinator at Smontanez2@schools.nyc.gov to obtain the authorization letter to create an account***
