School Secretaries

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to your School Secretaries Chapter web page. Your newly elected Executive Board and I look forward to serving our chapter. Leading this chapter of about 3,040 school secretaries is an enormous responsibility. We are dedicated to serving and working together with you.

In the box to the left on this page, you can see useful links. Please use this section of our chapter's website for helpful resources. You can also click on the links to view our contract and Chapter Representatives. We work a 7 hour and 20 minute day. For our roles and responsibilities, we still follow the rules of Special Circular 31 from the New York City Department of Education.

It is important you sign up on our website as soon as can. You don’t want to miss important information, emails or upcoming events from our chapter and our union.

The office telephone number is 212-701-9429. I am available on Mondays and Wednesdays. You can also contact me from your non-DOE email address at secretarychapterleader@uft.org.

Sincerely,

Doreen Berrios-Castillo
Chapter Leader
