specialized high school handbooks

A parent tracked down a link to the new version of the specialized high school handbook, which is not on the DOE website anywhere. You can find it here:

https://cdn-blob-prd.azureedge.net/prd-pws/docs/default-source/default-document-library/2020-shs-handbook---english-243498666.pdf

Last year’s specialized high school handbook is still the one on the DOE website:

https://www.schools.nyc.gov/docs/default-source/default-document-library/2019-shsat-student-handbooks.pdf

Last year’s has FAR MORE INFO. The new version ditched specific info about each school, which is super helpful. I’m assuming this was to keep the printed handbook smaller and that missing info is online at the MySchools site, where you’ll need to search by each individual school.

HOW TO FIND SPECIFIC SCHOOL INFO AT MYSCHOOLS:

At the very bottom of the website page you’ll find a School Directory link:

That will take you to a BROWSE page:

Which will take you to a search page:

From there you can search for individual schools. On THIS PAGE you’ll find info like performance, academics, activities and more. All the info that was in last year’s specialized high school handbook.
