Madeline Nieves, Parent Coordinator
Hi, my name is Madeline Nieves, I am the parent coordinator for 721M. I love what I do because I’m the liaison between school, parent and child. My job is to get as much parents involved with the school and keep parents inform of what going on with the student and build a relationship where the parent and school can come together and help the student.
My main focus is to keep communication open, that's why I want you to feel free to contact me via phone or stop by my office at any time. I also, invite you to come to our meetings where all the parents talk free and get together and go over things that are happening at 721M. Together, parent, and school will make the difference with need to make our students future bright. Here a little bit about me. I've been employed for 28 years at 721M. I started as a school aide for two years, then as a family worker for 14 years.
Working as a family worker has allowed me to really get to know my students and their families. They say the best way to help someone is to really understand what they are going through. I've had the privilege, to work close with the families who had needed my help. They trust that I have the best interest for their child. In 2003, I've start working as a parent coordinator and has allowed me to really help my parents.
The many ways I help my parents and students are:
provide information, resources and support for families to support their children such as services provided to students by the D.O.E and the school. Work with school, staff and district and network – based family support staff to address and resolve specific parent concerns.
Wishing you and your children a successful school year!
Parents and Guardians: We’ve made it easier to sign up for a NYC Schools Account (NYCSA). Setting up a basic account will allow you to get emergency notifications from the DOE.
You can create a basic account online from any computer, phone, or tablet. All you need to do is:
· Go to https://mystudent.nyc/saa/signup
· Set up the account by:
o Entering your name and email address,
o creating a password, and
o answering a few brief security questions so you can reset the password if you forget it.
After you create your account, you will need to verify your identity and your relationship with that student. You can do that at the upcoming Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, March 12, 2020, at 12:00 PM - 2:50 PM and from 5:00 - 7:00 PM. Once you do that you will be able to see your child’s grades, test scores, and attendance.
Parents: Take the Remote Learning Device Request Form
To help students stay connected during emergencies, the DOE is lending internet-enabled iPads to support remote learning for students. If you would like to request a device for an NYC student in your family, please fill out the Request form. The DOE will use the contact information you provide to get in touch with you to discuss when and where you can pick up a device. Priority will be given to students most in need, and all devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned. There is a limit of one device per student.
