Submit monthly Parent Coordinator Activity Reports (PCAR)

Data from the
DOE’s Parent Coordinator Activity Reports
is published in the annual Mayor’s Management Report as a measure of parent engagement in our schools. Reports are due monthly, by the 15th of the following month. Principals and parent coordinators automatically have access to the portal. Other staff members can be designated in Galaxy to input the Parent-Teacher Conference attendance as outlined in this memo.
