Summer Rising
Summer is about to get a whole lot more exciting for students!

Beginning on Monday, April 26, New York City families can start signing up for Summer Rising, the City’s free summer program for any child in grades K–12 who wants to participate.

Summer Rising combines the strength of the NYC Department of Education’s academics with the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development’s school-based enrichment programming to help create bridges back to school this fall. And it gives parents peace of mind as they return to work.

Summer Rising is available in every neighborhood. Programs for students in grades K-8 will be full day, in-person experiences that will be run by local school leaders and trusted community-based organizations in safe and supportive environments. Each program will offer academic support, arts, and recreation, and staff members will be prepared to respond to students’ social and emotional needs. Summer Rising programs will also offer students local field trips to parks, pools, and other enriching outdoor venues that are educational and in accordance with State health and safety guidelines.

All Summer Rising programs will follow rigorous health and safety protocols, including social distancing and mask wearing, and every location will have access to testing, nursing support, and a telehealth call center. In addition, breakfast, lunch, and a snack will be served to each student.

For more information about Summer Rising, visit the Summer page on our website. To register beginning on April 26, visit

Remote Learning Device Request

As of January 12, 2021 this form is for school staff to use on behalf of families. If you are a parent of a student in need of a device, please contact your school. Use Find a School and click on the General Information section of the school details to get the contact information for your school’s staff.

During remote and blended learning, schools should work with families to determine their device and connectivity needs to maximize student participation and match devices in their inventory to meet student needs. The DOE continues to lend internet-enabled iPads and hotspots to students and will fill requests for devices that come from schools on behalf of families.

School staff should use this Remote Learning Device (RLD) form to request a device for a NYC student if your school does not have inventory on-hand to fill the request. Please work with the family to fill out the request and ensure that the family understands the Student Device Agreement.

Devices will be distributed to your school.
