For those of you looking for school records in NYC, perhaps you can also
try, in addition to the school or the Bd of Education, the Community
School Districts. Each school is administered by a Community School
District with a Community Superintendent who is in charge of the
schools in the district. They have large office staffs.
If you don't get the info you need, ask the school for the telephone
number of the local school board.
I just checked and for the Lower East Side, it is Community School
Distric #1. 80 Montgomery Street, New York, NY 10002. The telephone
numbr is 212 -602-9700.
