Video Simulation

This video simulation, a collaborative project between NYS-TEACHS and the Urban Arts Partnership, demonstrates the ways in which conversation between school staff and a parent can affect the school registration process. In this Choose Your Own Adventure-style video, you will act as the front line staff at "New City School District". You will be asked to respond to a parent who has come to enroll her daughter in school, and your choices will guide how the conversation unfolds.
