Bronx Parent Conference

Parents

Parents and educators are natural allies in the effort to provide the best education to our children. The UFT works closely with thousands of parents across the city to help ensure that their children and all New York City students receive a great education.

Our parent support team

The UFT offers support to parents in every borough. Our parent and community outreach work is led by Nicholas Cruz, who works out of the union’s main office, and carried out at the borough level by five full-time parent liaisons. Parent liaisons can schedule workshops, informational meetings and networking opportunities for groups and individuals.

To find out what’s available and to ask other questions, contact the UFT parent and community liaison in the borough where you live or where your child attends school.

This section explains the key people and organizations at your child's school that can help you to resolve issues and become involved in school-level decision-making.

In the school system

What's New

Parent conferences

More than 300 parents turned out on Nov. 5 at the UFT borogh offices in Queens and on Staten Island for a day of workshops, food and fun at the union’s parent conferences, the first in-person parent conferences in those boroughs since the COVID-19...

Bullying knows no bounds

After holding my annual Middle School Anti-Bullying Conference in October, I learned my 28-year-old daughter had been bullied when she was in middle school. While I was shocked, I was not surprised.

First Book event

More than 1,000 parents, some with children in tow, brought their own bags, boxes and containers to the First Book event at PS 257 in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Nov. 5 and carted off many of the 40,000 free books on offer.
