New York School for the Deaf provides multiple opportunities for PARENTS to get involved. If you are a parent or guardian, please consider joining one or more of the parent outreach programs.
We strive to provide direct access to all NYSD information, whether it is related to academics, support services, or fun events. To ensure clear communication access, a Certified ASL Interpreter and Spanish Interpreter will be available at all parent/guardian involvement opportunities and events.
Fanwood Family Newsletter
The Fanwood Family Newsletter provides families with up-to-date information on all events, activities and school related news. Parents play the most important role in influencing and reinforcing education and NYSD strives to keep you informed. As a parent or guardian of a Fanwood student, you can expect to receive a monthly newsletter via email and/or post office delivery.
NYSD Parent ASL Classes
We offer several ASL courses for parents at various days and times throughout the week. Parents or guardians of Fanwood students can take the courses free of charge. For more information on how to participate in these classes, click HERE (English) Spanish Version
