Leadership position as a member of the Panel for Educational Policy

Dear parents,

I would like to make you aware of an exciting opportunity to serve in a leadership position as a member of the Panel for Educational Policy (PEP)! Apply by November 23 to be considered for one of the 5 seats on the panel reserved for 5 parents, one from each borough.

The PEP is responsible for some of the most significant decisions affecting NYC’s education system. It votes on the Chancellor’s proposed education policies, including school closings, co-locations, and grade expansions; DOE contracts; and, most importantly, the DOE’s budget. The PEP also advises the Chancellor on general matters affecting the city’s school districts and its students.

PEP meetings are open to the public, and scheduled meeting dates, minutes from past meetings and videos of past meetings are posted on the PEP page on the DOE’s website. Each monthly meeting includes a “public comment” section.

The application is available in all languages on the DOE website. Please fill it out and send it to PEPParentApplications@schools.nyc.gov no later than November 23. Your application will be reviewed and voted on by the 32 Community Education Council presidents. If you are elected, your term of service will begin on January 15 and end on June 30, 2023.

I hope you will consider this opportunity to serve the children of New York City!

Thank you,
