In so doing, the Office benefits the thousands of students who attend the community schools of the District.
The District Office of Education is also an avid advocate for the New York City parochial day (or faith-based) schools and represents the day schools to the education authorities at the federal, state and city level. Under this capacity, the Office has been instrumental in securing materials and services for the schools that are federally funded.
The Office is also represented by its director at the New York City Standing Committee of Religious & Independent Schools Officials, which is comprised of representatives of the City's major religious institutions.
