Operoo is a system that digitizes information including registration documents. The Operoo system makes it very easy for families to fill out permission slips, blue cards, registration forms, consent forms and more using a mobile phone, tablet or computer. No more paperwork!
In order to get started with Operoo, you will need to have an email address or cell phone number on file with us. You should already have this if you have a NYCSA account through mystudent.nyc or if you are receiving REMIND messages from us.
To protect your child’s privacy, parent and student information will only be visible by the relevant staff and will be managed in accordance with our privacy policies. Details about Operoo’s security and privacy procedures can be found here: https://www.operoo.com/terms-policies-security/.
You can also visit the Operoo website for more information here: www.operoo.com and see a family introduction page here: https://www.operoo.com/intro-for-parents/.
