Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams has released English and Spanish versions of the Brooklyn Parent Guide to Public Education, a handbook compiled to help Brooklyn parents navigate City resources for students.

Adams said the guide addresses important educational issues, such as pre-K enrollment, high school admissions, career and technical schools, special education and charter schools.

It also provides contact information for various offices in the New York City Department of Education, as well as Community Education Councils representing families in Brooklyn and citywide.

“I am a firm believer in the principle that the more Brooklyn parents are involved in their children’s education, the better the results are for our students and for our borough’s future,” writes Adams in the guide’s introduction.

“Whether you are looking for information on enrollment, finding your zoned school, getting safety or transportation services, or simply need to speak to someone about the many programs available for your child, just turn to the correct page in this guide and you will find the key you need to unlock the answer,” he added.

The English version of the guide can be viewed on Adams’s website by visiting; the Spanish version can be found at
