Update from the Principal:

Dear Information Technology High School Students and Parents,

I hope your summer has started off well! You may have heard the school chancellor's and mayor's announcement yesterday regarding the opening of school this Fall 2020. Please see attached letter from our school chancellor. Schools are expected to incorporate a blended learning model (both in-person and online learning) beginning this September 2020. Over the next few weeks, the Info Tech H.S. team will ask for your input regarding our blended learning model as we believe that success comes from collective effort. We want to ensure that we hear from all members of our school community. Safety, health, and supporting all members are at the forefront of our planning over the next few weeks and in the time to come.

I continue to be proud of our Information Technology High School community and I'm optimistic of our continued success during challenging times as these.


Principal Jean Woods-Powell

Apreciados Estudiantes y Padres de Information Technology High School,

Espero que su Verano haya comenzado bien! Tal vez Usted escucho ayer el anuncio de el Alcalde y el Canciller Escolar acerca de la apertura de las escuelas este Otono 2020. Por favor vea la carta adjunta de nuestro Canciller Escolar. Se espera que las escuelas incorporen un modelo de aprendizaje combinado (aprendizaje en persona y remoto en linea) comenzando este Septiembre 2020. Atravez de las proximas semanas, el equipo de Info Tech H.S. le preguntara su opinion sobre el modelo de aprendizaje combinado porque creemos que el exito viene de el efuerzo colectivo. Queremos estar seguros de escuchar a todos los miembros de nuestra comunidad escolar. Seguridad, salud, y apoyo a todos los miembros estan a la vanguardia de nuestra planificacion durante las proximas semanas y en el tiempo venidero.

Continuo orgullosa de nuestra comunidad de Information Technology High School y estoy optimista de nuestro continuo exito durante tiempos desafiantes como estos.

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

We hope you all have had a great start to summer 2020 and that everyone remains safe and healthy! Our Information Technology High School team remains available to support with anything you need at this time.

During the summer, we would like for our students to take advantage of the reading and learning activities that the New York City Department of Education has developed for students. With online learning that has taken place over the last few months, our Info Tech H.S. team is asking that our students engage in summer reading and the summer enrichment activities that NYCDOE is now incorporating. Learning loss over the summer is a real thing and we want our students to remain intellectually engaged during summer break. Please see attached letter from our school's chancellor, Mr. Richard Carranza, as it highlights all the great summer learning opportunities and activities that the NYCDOE has incorporated beginning this week.

If you need to contact the school, please email our parent coordinator, Ms. Emma Roman Mendoza, at

Durante el Verano, nos gustaria que nuestros estudiantes aprovechen las actividades de lectura y aprendizaje que el Departamento de Educacion de la Ciudad de New York ha desarollado para los estudiantes. Con el aprendizaje en linea que se ha llevado acabo durante los ultimos meses, nuestro equipo de Info Tech H.S. estan pidiendo que nuestros estudiantes se envolucren en lectura de Verano y en actividades enriquecedoras de Verano que NYCDOE ahora esta incorporando. La perdida de aprendizaje durante el Verano es algo real y queremos que nuestros estudiantes se mantengan intelectualmente involucrados durante las vacaciones de Verano. Por favor vea la carta adjunta de el Canciller de nuestra escuela, Mr. Richard Carranza, ya que destaca todas las excelentes oportunidades de aprenizaje y actividades de Verano que el NYCDOE ha incorporado a partir de esta semana.
