In 2015, Chancellor Carmen Fariña launched Strong Schools, Strong Communities - a bold initiative to bring parity to the support NYC public schools receive as they strive to continually improve student life outcomes. Field Support teams partner with Superintendents and central divisions to further the chancellor's vision as outlined in The Framework for Great Schools.

As part of the Strong Schools, Strong Communities approach, Chancellor Fariña announced the creation of the Office of Field Support and Field Support Centers, which provide principals with streamlined, increased support, resources, and oversight. Each of the Field Support Centers, or FSCs, will provide high-quality, differentiated support in instruction, operations, and student services such as safety, health, and wellness, as well as support for English Language Learners and students with special needs.

Our Schools
The Manhattan Field Support Center serves 249 schools throughout the borough. Our schools span preK to 12th grade and provide a full range of services to all students.
