Improving Our Schools 

What You Need to Know:

  • The consolidation of City and Board of Education services is freeing Yonkers Public Schools of millions in expenses, steering more resources to where it's needed most: the classroom

  • State legislation approved funding to rebuild schools in Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester and we're asking Albany to give us the same assistance to rebuild our schools

  • Working closely with the Board of Education, we plan to utilize a $23 million state education bond act so that we can bring Wi-Fi Internet access to every learner in our City by 2018.

  • We're restoring full-day Prekindergarten to every student beginning September 2015. For more information on how to enroll your child into the full-day program for the 2015-2016 academic year, contact Yonkers Public Schools at (914) 376-8050 or visit
