Welcome to the New York City Department of Education's online registration and application site for future school leaders.
Since its inception in 2003, NYC's Children First Agenda has been based on the underlying belief that school leaders are critical levers of change and should be empowered to make decisions and be held accountable for results. The Department of Education seeks outstanding educators to become great school leaders who will ensure that each and every one of the 1.1 million students in NYC public schools succeeds and is prepared for college and life.
This site is the first step to becoming a school leader. Through this site, you will be able to:

- Apply to education administrator vacancies (NEW)
